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

Vicksburg, Tuesday, Aug. 25. This morning twenty-seven men started home on sick furloughs, some that were in great need of it, others who were “a little sick” so as to go home. The remainder of the day “furlough” was the theme, and many were a “leetle” homesick. On guard. Third relief. Day wound up with a fight.
