Diary of Sergeant George G. Smith: October 28, 1862

Went on a foraging expedition and secured some poultry for home consumption. Heard news of a fight between our brigade and the rebels at Thibadeauville. Our boys were victorious, taking seventy or eighty prisoners who were sent to New Orleans on transports.
