1861 August 29

[from the diary of Eugene M. Cox, Albemarel Border Guards and 46th Virginia Infantry]

8 A.M. Rained all night and still it rains--9 P.M. the sun came out beautifully this evening and gave us earnest of fair weather, but as night came on clouds obscure the sky again, betokening more rain and at this hour we are threatened with a heavy story--9 1/2--Taps and all lights to out.

MSS 38-211
