An Artilleryman's Diary–Jenkin Lloyd Jones, 6th Battery, Wisconsin Artillery.

On the Coldwater, Sunday, March 29. Cold, disagreeable. Sleet and rain part of the time. Health much better. Tied up near shore. Got our horses off across the “White Rose”; gave them good exercise. Stretched a picket, left them for the night. A solitary tent with two cases of small-pox was to be seen, left by the Louisiana fleet. Wrote home.
