Through Some Eventful Years by Susan Bradford Eppes

June 27th, 1862.—Brother Amos has been to Enfield to see Sister Mag and the children, though he could only stay twenty-four hours. He thinks his daughter is the prettiest baby he ever saw and Eddie wants to go back to camp with him.

Sister Mag says the wounded men are passing through Enfield every day. As soon as they are well enough to leave the hospital they are sent home or to some nearby place to be nursed back to health and other wounded men take their places in the hospitals. This is necessary for the fighting is almost continuous.
