[Early in the autumn of 1862, the war correspondence of the Buchanan county
press, was enlarged by communications from members of the two companies, Captain
Miller's and Captain Noble's, which had been enlisted from this county and were
incorporated in the Twenty-seventh Iowa infantry. Letters over the signature C.
H. L., were written by Charles H. Lewis, of Quasqueton, a member of Captain
Miller's company. - E. P.]
