December 1, 1863

Bivouac in the woods.  Moved into the woods early this morning.  Good fires part of the day.  Roast meat relishes well today.  Civilized people would have been surprised to have seen us eat.  Rebels distinctly seen today.  Cold and winter-like but fair.  Two incidents today.  A little flour left at the foot of a tree by the rebels was eagerly scraped up by me.  A cabbage leaf was relished.  Not because I was hungry but a change is exceedingly desirable.
