Diary of 2nd Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Saturday, July 2, 1864

This morning we started about 7 o'clock for camp and arrived about 10 o'clock a. m.; have had directions to fix up quarters as there is a prospect of remaining in camp several days; are obeying orders of course, but I suspect we shall move before three days; very warm day — sweltering.
