Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Friday, May 23, 1862

We formed a line of battle at 4 o'clock this morning, but the rebels did not make their expected attack. The army generally now forms a line of battle every morning at 4 and remains in line until about 6 o'clock. It rained some today, and on account of the wet weather it was only at times that there was activity along the lines.
