1863 February 13 camp near Falmouth

[from the diary of Captain Jonathan B. Hager, 14th U. S. Regulars, returning from mustering duty]

Feby 13  I was glad to see the officers nearly all of
               whom I had not seen since last summer.
               I found myself the senior officer & of course will
               assume the command of the regiment.

MSS 9044
