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

On the Mississippi, Monday, April 13. Got all on board once more and at 12 A. M. started up to Helena, unloaded the cotton taken in the Pass, and returned to find the boats all gone except the “Tempest” (commissary boat) and at about 3 P. M., we started down the river. Detained most of the night in extricating the “Duke of Argyle.”
