Was put on a forced march from Camp Nelson Kentucky to the Cumberland Gap on or about the 20 day of August 1863. It was a very hot day, and on account of heat and extreme fatigue, soldier David Smith it is believed and I believe he received a sun stroke from which he was disabled very much. As to his hospital record at Cumberland Gap, I was taken away from regiment and hospital on a sick leave of absence to a farm house before he came in, therefore, did not see him at the hospital and further, I declare that I have no interest in said case and am not concerned in it's prosecution".
