    Still rain. Stoneman was on the north side of the Rappahannock yesterday morning, and will hardly get over the river for some days to come.

    @ Maria: When we get paid, I will get my Picture taken in full uniform gun and all and send it. It is only a dollar. Parade rest looks best.

    If this army could only move in an ark against the rebels, it wouldn't make so much difference; but we are restricted to legs.

    Noah may have experienced harder rain after he drew in the gang-plank, but I don't believe he heard it patter so many nights over his head.

    Official news of the capture of Butte a la Rose was received. This completes our expedition.

    News has come that the attack on Charleston has failed. I hope this will settle Hunter, who is a fool, and Adml DuPont, who lacks enterprise

    There is no "oldest inhabitant" in these regions to inquire of, else I would get his testimony to add to my own.

    Of all the wet seasons that ever threatened to drown out and wash away this dirty continent of ours, this is the climax.

    This has been a chilly day. The spring is very backward, very few trees show any inclination to bud.

    My Brothers write Pretty regular which I shall always remember.
  • Charles Wainwright 05:08 PM April 21, 2009
    Neither officers nor men are quite so anxious for a fight as they were last spring, both are seasoned and know more about their business.

    This army is now in good order to commence operations. There has been a large amount of drilling going on for the last month.

    @ Ellen: We are still here. Something is going on but no one knows what it is. I road down to the Lacy House and saw a Rebel regiment.

    The Texans are playing the devil through the country as they retreat, and the people follow them with curses.

    So this fool runs into our lines to complain to the Major General and of course will remain inside our lines for several days.

    I asked if the Negroes had committed any outrage. He said no, but his wife was nervous.
  • David Strother 03:10 PM April 21, 2009
    A man named Rogers came in from the country to complain that 2 Negroes had come to his house to buy eggs and had scared his wife into fits.

    We have seized the city with Robison's cavalry. Thus far our advance has been an uninterrupted success. We'll breathe here for a day or two.

    I am not sure but some of the girls and young sisters would rather the men had been allowed to break in.

    Came across a church. A padre asked protecetion for the religious house of sisters opposite. We accorded it and placed the guard.
