Diary of 1st Lieutenant John S. Morgan: Thursday, May 18, 1865

Rained very hard during the night, feel much better today & am up most of time, Sanitary Potatoes begin to work — Capt Lacy was out & took supper with us, announces the arrival this P. M. of Genl Canby. Nothing new going on but Rumor says a train of 900 wagons is to be sent through by land to Baton Rouge with the 50th Ind to guard it.
