"Tuesday 9th. Drills as usual, except that Battalion drill was particularly long, as the Reg did poorly." ~ Diary of Horace Barlow (UVM), 126, Horace Barlow, Pvt., Co. C, 12th Regiment

"June 9. The Paymaster is in camp this morning, and to-day the regiment will be paid off. Very warm and sultry; there has been no rain for four weeks." ~ John C. Williams, Corporal, Co. B, 14th Regiment, Life in Camp 121 (1864)
