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

January 20th.

Nothing reliable from the front. All sorts of rumors prevail, but so contradictory one can believe none of them.

Early this morning infantry began to come in, or rather to pour through, in the wake of the cavalry. All day long they came, a ceaseless flood. They belong to the Fourth Corps. I could get nothing satisfactory from them, only they were going to Louisville. After all, it may be only a change of position.
