Diary of 2nd Lieutenant George G. Smith: October 16, 1864

It being Sunday, we had a sermon by the chaplain of the 161st New York. Passed Napoleon, Ark., and ran past the “shute,” landing at White river at 3 p. m. On the 18th went on board the “Bart Able” with the 161st New York and the 29th Illinois, bound for Memphis.
