Diary of 1st Sergeant John L. Ransom: March 19, 1864

A good deal of fighting going on among us. A large number of sailors and marines are confined with us, and they are a quarrelsome set. I have a very sore hand, caused by cutting a hole through the car trying to get out. I have to write with my left hand It is going to be an awful place during the summer months here, and thousands will die no doubt
