This very detailed diary ends suddenly in Greenville,
Tennessee where John Hunt Morgan was killed. Whether the
remaining diary was lost or discontinued is speculation only.
The exact time when the manuscript was written isn't clear
but it was several years after the war while John Weatherred was in
retirement in Tacoma, Washington.
the Weatherred Family by John Coleman Weatherred in 1915 was
recently discovered and reveals family information previously
unknown, including John's middle name. As any additional
family information comes to light we will make the
information available here.
I live between Hartsville and Gallatin, Tennessee and am
very familiar with many of the references contained in the Diary.
I metal detect for a hobby and have dug and displayed relics
from various camping and battle sites mentioned as well.
Good unpublished regimental diaries are not common and for this
reason it is offered here for the enjoyment and historical value it
