Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Sunday, February 8, 1863

Orders came for the detail of men to quit the work of repairing the levee and for our entire division immediately to embark on the transports. The Eleventh and Thirteenth Regiments went on board the "Empress" and loaded all their supplies after night; at the last moment the Tenth Ohio was ordered to take passage with us.
