Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, Monday, April 14, 1862

We had inspection of arms this forenoon. Most of the boys in our company picked up rifles from the battlefield and got better rifles than they had. But it makes it quite difficult for the quartermaster to supply the extra ammunition required for the different kinds of rifles. The weather is quite warm.
