On February 16, 1862, William wrote a short letter to his mother from Camp Wood, Kentucky. In the letter he reports that they only traveled 16 miles before they were ordered to return to camp. He also notes that the 1st OVI has suffered greatly during the last two or three days from cold weather and deep snow. (Transcript of William Patterson letter, February 16, 1862)
