1862 December 24 near Nashville

[from the diary of Captain William F. Hunter, Co. B., 97th Ohio]

     Dec. 24th, ’62.
Already to march
at day light; rain-
ing a little.
About 7 A.M. a
fierce shower came
on. With our wag-
ons all loaded
ready to start, we
formed the line, &
stacked arms.
At 4 P.M. we rec’d.
an order to pitch
tents! Knee better,
but not yet able
to-march. Ordered
to be ready to march
at day light to-morrow

[transcript by Mary Roy Dawson Edwards]
