March 30, 1863. H.G. Sheldon promoted

"March 30. Another promotion has taken place in this regiment since we have been in camp: First Sergeant Sheldon, of Company H, to be Second Lieutenant of Company K, vice Fuller, resigned. This place is very strongly fortified by rifle pits and breastworks, behind which artillery is posted, commanding the ford. We could keep three times our number at bay very easily." ~ J. C. Williams, Corporal, Co. B, 14th Regiment, Life in Camp, 102-103(1864).
