Diary of 1st Lieutenant John S. Morgan: Wednesday, May 17, 1865

Spent a miserable night which was more disturbed by a gang of officers of 28th Wis coming around about 12 oclock on a high. They tried unsuccessfully to get Cap. out with them, have a shower at 2. p. m. The woods about camp full of gamblers, many gambling now who never did before. Am feeling some better this evening
