Captain Charles Wright Wills: October 29, 1864

Camp in piney woods, five miles South of Cedar Bluffs, October 29, 1864.

Such a march over pine ridges and through swamps; Egyptian darkness would take a back seat in comparison with this night. It just happened to strike the men as funny, and they kept up a roar of cheering the whole distance.
