Diary of 2nd Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Tuesday, July 19, 1864

The enemy did not press us further than the river last night, nor have they made an advance to-day, yet they remain in our front. They are busy caring for their wounded. Both sides are within shelling distance; have remained in our works all day which we built last night.
