Diary of 2nd Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Wednesday, March 30, 1864

It rained hard all night; didn't sleep a wink; got very wet; men in good spirits and everything working well in spite of the rain; have seen no officer of the day. Lieut. George P. Welch came down to see me this evening; very dark; camp quiet; looks like another storm before morning.
