    Each man is also to carry 60 rounds of ammunition; ninety more to go on mules. I believe we are ready to start now on twelve hours' notice.

    Received orders that look like a start. The men are to carry 5 days' rations in their knapsacks; and 3 day's in their havresacks.

    The Rebels were trying to send us a paper by making a little boat and and then letting it loose upstream. The attempts proved failures.

    Just returned from a nice ride down the river where I saw the Rebels on the opposite bank.

    The enthusiasm of the troops is very high at the present time. All hands agree in declaring that the army was never in so fine a condition.
  • Mason W. Tyler 01:22 PM April 13, 2009
    Furloughs and leaves of absences now ceased, and every available man was called back to join him command.

    @ MajGen_Hooker Your letter is received, and will be conformed to. The thing you dispense with would have been ready by mid-day to-morrow.

    A court martial has been ordered & I have been made president of the court. We are to use the church, Mt Carmel, for a place of sitting.

    This day is quite warm and like spring. There is some cannonading at a distance. But what it is we don't know...

    We do not yet get any direct accounts of the attempt on Charleston: the reports through rebel sources are that Dupont's fleet was repulsed.
  • Abraham Lincoln 02:38 PM April 12, 2009
    (to Admiral_Dupont cont.) Do not allow the enemy to erect new batteries or defenses on Morris Island. If he has begun it, drive him out.
  • Abraham Lincoln 02:36 PM April 12, 2009
    Wrote to Admiral_Dupont: Hold your position near Charleston; or, if you shall have left it, return to it, and hold it until further orders.
  • Charles Wainwright 12:08 PM April 11, 2009
    The reviewing is over, the President gone back to Washington, and all once more quietly waiting for orders to move out.
  • Abraham Lincoln 12:02 PM April 11, 2009
    Tracking down a soldier, John R. Minnick, under sentence of death. Unsure of what his offense, and when is he to be executed.
  • Edward Alexander 07:54 PM April 10, 2009
    There have been peddlers selling whiskey in the vicinity of the army. I have caught one outfit of them, and doubt we will see them again.
  • Robert McAllister 07:49 PM April 10, 2009
    Saw the rebel fires yesterday, on the opposite bank of the Rappahanock. We have at least 4 miles to picket.
