Diary of 2nd Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Monday, May 2, 1864

Still another fine day, and yet the army remains idle. The query generally is, “when will the army move, and where?” I guess we will wish it hadn't when it does move. General U. S. Grant seems to keep his own counsel, like the silent man he is. It is well. A furious wind-storm occurred about 5 o'clock p. m. but did not disturb us much.
