January 11, 1863

Jan. 11th.  A beautiful day—the mud drying up fast & things about camp improving in appearance.  There is a great deal of sickness in the regiment.  In our Co. we report 26 unfit for duty today—9 in the Hospital & 15 in quarters.   Among the latter is Orderly Sergt. True, who has been unwell several days.  Had religious service this morning in the open air just in the rear of our tents—subject of the discourse, “Heaven.”

  1. Very interesting — just wonder: What location is Captain Case writing from?

    • Case was Captain of the 22nd Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment that was attached to Grover’s Division, Department of the Gulf in early January 1863 – located primarily in Louisiana.
