Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Tuesday, July 29, 1862

We got on the right road and started at 8 o'clock this morning. We marched twelve miles and bivouacked for the night. The weather is extremely hot and the roads are very dusty. Orlando Stout of Company E fell out of the ranks today, and getting too far behind, was taken prisoner.
