Dear Don -

Thank you for the reply.

I do have all 116 pages of the original claim from NARA. It makes for intresting reading. It reads like a flock of locust came thru Moses' place on Blackwater Creek. I don't think they left one single useful thing except his mill stones and they were too heavy to move. The troops even dug-up the seed sweet potatoes already planted in the fields. After they used his lumber and tools to rebuild the bridge (which the CSA had burned down), they threw all the tools and remaining nails in the river.

I also have the Union notes from the Official Records; they "found sufficient" provisions for all 5,000 +/- troops and animals camped on the Camak place.
