Diary of 2nd Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Sunday, April 3, 1864

It has rained nearly all day; mud very deep in camp: more stormy weather the past two weeks than all winter before; most of the officers are building new cabins, the huts occupied by the previous regiment being uninhabitable. It's a dark and dismal camp, and very depressing.
