1863 January 8 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 8
I went out to Company drill, but we
were called to get ready for
inspection by Col. Lee. In the afternoon I read
and wrote some.  We got good news from Rose-
ecrancz to-night and also the Presidents emanci-
pation proclamation. Thank God for the good
news, and may His blessing rest upon our efforts
for freedom and right.  John Simonds was detailed
by the Quartermaster
