'On to Nashville!'

Location: Nashville, TN, USA
View of Nashville (HW  3/8/1862)
A few days ago, we read a letter from the 77th Pennsylvania about the march from Munfordville to Bowling Green and on to Nashville, Tennessee.  Here's a corresponding letter detailing the march of the 79th Pennsylvania.  It's still unclear to me who authored the letter, but I'm guessing based on the content that it was a member of Company H.

Also, here's another letter from an unidentified reporter--probably from a Louisville, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, or New York--published in the March 15, 1862, Daily Evening Express: (alternate link)
