War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld

April 21. – Captain Falley’s train moved from Major Spaulding’s this afternoon to Major Beers’s camp. Rode over to Major Spaulding’s and to General Couch’s headquarters with General Benham. Went ahead with a road party to repair road, etc. The Regulars moved their train to a point near the river. Major Cassin also moved his train some hundred feet or so. The only mule teams that arrived at the time they were ordered were Major Cassin’s. The others were from an hour to two hours late.
