Following the American Civil War Sesquicentennial with day by day writings of the time, currently 1863.

Thursday, August 4th.

Found myself quite weak and exhausted this morning, and experienced some difficulty in walking but managed to keep up and around the camp. Companies A and M returned from Siege Train Landing to-day and joined the regiment, and an order was received again assigning us to the Second Corps. Lieut. Col. Alcock, now in command of the regiment, reported to our new corps commander but nothing was done about breaking camp. It is rumored that the Second Corps is to be sent to Washington, though precisely why we are not informed.
