Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Saturday, February 22, 1862

This is Washington's birthday. We packed our knapsacks early this morning and left Lookout for California, arriving at 2 p. m. The roads were quite muddy. In camp again at California, Missouri. We pitched our tents on the commons south of town.
