Chatanooga Rebel says that Col. Boone, of Kentucky
was in command of the Yankee forces at Gallatin, when col. Jack Morgan made his
morning call last week, and had not shaken off the drowsy god at the time of
the demand for the surrender of his forces.
Mrs. Boone, however, was more wide awake, and aroused the sleeping
Colonel by exclaiming “I surrender, and so does the Colonel.” Of course after that the colonel had no more
to say but quietly caved in.
