Diary of Sergeant Major Luman Harris Tenney: May 25, 1863

After breakfast, just as most of the Cos. had started to graze, word came that rebels were crossing at Fisher's Creek in force and had captured pickets. “Boots and Saddles” sounded and we were soon under way for the ford. Issued rations first. Rebels gone. Followed trail some distance and rested at the Brewery. Got back into camp before dark. Got some supper. Cleaned my horse. Wrote a little and retired.
