1863 January 20 New Bern, N.C.

[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F., 25th Massachusetts]

Jan 20
Upton drilled us again to day and I felt
rather vexed because he run us so.
It commenced raining so we went in.  I finished
the life of Moses this afternoon.   Phineas gave me
a fried pie.   Played a few games of chess with George
after battalion drill.  this evening Frank Adams
came in our tent.  It is now raining hard and is
going to be a wet night.  We had beans for
breakfast, fried pork and hard-tack for dinner
