14th Wis. April 6, 1862
Sunday, 6 Rained all night and we had to stand in it. Heard heavy firing in the morning and soon heard that the rebbles had attacked our forces at Pitchburg. Thought that we could not have a chance to have a hand in. Got orders to march at 4 oclock with nothing but our ruber blanket. Went on bord of the boat & come to Pitchburg.
