Morgan's Raid in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio - Confederate Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan advances from Sparta, Tennessee on June 11, 1863 through Kentucky and into pro-Union Indiana and Ohio.

Hood and the remnants of his raiding forces were captured on July 26, 1863 near West Point, Ohio after several small skirmishes.
