Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Sunday, March 23, 1862

The Eleventh Iowa received marching orders, and we struck our tents and got on board the “Westmoreland.”  The quartermaster had all of the commissariat on the boat by noon and we left for Pittsburg Landing. We reached the landing at dark and remained on the boat for the night.
