Thomas H. Hines’ account of his
escape with Gen. Morgan
On the evening of the 29th of
November we left Union with a voluntary guide,
passed through the eastern edge of
County, and after traveling all night
spent the day of the 30th at the house of a friend on the
County line. Passing through New
Liberty, in Owen County, and crossing the Kentucky River at the ferry on
the road to New Castle, in Henry County, we stopped at the house of Mr.
Pollard at 2 A. M., December 1. Our guide did not know the people nor
the roads farther than the ferry, at which point he turned back.
