In his diary entry on Sept. 26, 1863, Wilbur Fisk (author of the "Hard Marching" letters) mentioned visting with his cousin Alvah Learned when their regiments were camped near each other in Virginia:
"... Found cousin Alvah Learned, and had a short visit with him. The last time I saw that fellow he was a little small boy. He is small now but larger than he was then by considerable. ..."
Their mothers were sisters.
