1862 May 29, Camp Lovell near Richmond, Va.
[from the diary of Jonathan Hager of the 14th U.S. Regulars, as copied and annotated at a later date]
May 29 Today at 2 P.M. we retraced our steps
towards "Camp Lovell" a distance of eleven or
twelve miles. The march was unaccompanied
by any incident of interest and we reached
camp at about 7.30 P.M., tolerably tired &
dirty. A cup of Coffee and a good wash
set us all right again & we went to our rude
couches grateful that were back safe and
that we enjoyed so much comfort.
