Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Thursday, September 18, 1862

It rained all night and till about 10 o'clock in the morning. We were on the march again for fifteen miles and then bivouacked for the night. We have traveled forty miles in the two days and learn that we are about ten miles from Corinth.
