Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: April 1, 1863

It is said we have taken Washington, a village in North-Carolina. And it is represented that large supplies of meat, etc. can be taken from thence and the adjacent counties.

Every day we look for important intelligence from Charleston, and from the West.
