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

Saturday, 4th—The Grand race between Wharton and Harrison came off this morning. All the Regiment that wished to went out. I remained in Camp. I and Reuben S. went over and got dinner at Mrs. Blanton’s. Came back and the Regiment was getting ready to leave. I and Lonnie Logan came on to town and stopped at Dr. Moore’s. Miss Nannie made some music for us. We bade them goodbye and overtook the Regiment. After we got, to Camp, I took John Rector’s horse and went up to Mr. Stewart’s; found Dan at home. I took supper and staid all night; got some provisions fixed up and left before day. Came down to Camp and started soon after up country.
