1863 February 22 camp across Rappahannock from Fredericksburg

[from the diary of the Rev. Francis E. Butler,  chaplain of the 25th New Jersey]

Thurs 22.  Little easier – at noon rose   ate arrowroot
& heard bear stories in Evg.  still storms, constant
orders to move & wait, rumored McClellan is
coming to the Army.  we have moved, it seems certain
but not know much of the Army or where they
have gone
