February 15, 1863

2-15[Louisiana] Sunday.  Had no military orders to do.  Services in forenoon.  Sermon by Mr. Wardwell—a good faithful, practical discourse.  Weather cloudy & warm.  This evening it is raining again.  Prayer meeting at Quartermaster tent.  I have not attended.  The Col. told me today that we are to turn over our tents & be furnished with “shelter tents”.  This looks like a move into the field.  It may come within a few days.  It is said that the Brigadier, General Dwight, has arrived & is to take command—hope he is a different man from Col. Wilson.
