Dave,

This story is particularly interesting me for a variety of reasons.

First, and foremost, the headquarters escort squadron of the 1st Indiana made the raid on Fredericksburg with Ulric Dahlgren in November 1862.  I'm finishing up a biography of Ulric Dahlgren, and the Fredericksburg raid is of great interest to me.

Second, Martin Hogan of the 1st Indiana Cavalry ended up in the Bureau of Military Information, and was one of Dahlgren's scouts on the 1864 Richmond raid that cost Dahlgren his life.  I wonder, therefore, if Sergeant Harter remained involved in intel gathering after this, or if it was an isolated incident.

Do you have any further information on Harter?

Thanks,

Eric
