Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Friday, December 20, 1861

We finished cleaning our clothing and accouterments and spent the rest of the day in cleaning up our camp and parade ground, besides bringing in firewood from the timber near by. When we got back we found the Thirteenth Iowa here in camp, having arrived on the11th day of the month, during our absence.
