A Soldier's Diary, The Story of a Volunteer, David Lane, (17th Mich. Vol. Infantry)

February 21st, 1864.

Our brigade had general inspection and review yesterday. That means move. They also drew nine days’ rations.

The original occupants of this hospital have all left on furlough except ten, and they will soon go. I am thankful I have had the privilege of making many a heart glad by a word spoken in their behalf. I am going to see the wounded off, then will try to get a furlough for myself.
