Camp 8th Michigan Near Crab Orchard, Kentucky August 31, 1863 Dear Father, We are again well down in the state of Kentucky – breathing pure air & drinking pure water, thankful that we are as well situated as we are. The watchful care of divine providence has been over us in all the dangers of military life both by sea & land, preserving alike from the pestilence that walketh by noon day & the missile of death
