Diary of Sergeant Major Luman Harris Tenney: April 12, 1863

After breakfast, Col. (Abbey) and I got a team and rode horseback to town for rations — got 3 days' rations. These troops from the Potomac never received any company savings. Marched at noon after giving rations. Ordered to Stanford, 50 miles south of Lexington. Reached Winchester about dark. Got some eggs and biscuit. A darkey came in and had a good visit. Intelligent though uneducated.
