((US National Archives))
"April 15. No move yet, but speedy preparations are being made for a move of some kind. Our A tents are to be taken away from us, and orders from the quartermaster that no more clothing will be issued for thirty days. Officers are to be left with nothing but fly tents, so they will fare no better than their men." ~ J. C. Williams, Corporal, Co. B, 14th Regiment, Life in Camp,109 (1864).
