Civil War Diaries, September 30, 1862

Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

“Sept. 30  Preparations were made early in the morning to start for Louisville.

Knapsacks were packed & the camp though in a hub-bub were in the best of spirits.

Pa & Mr. Buchanan came into camp & waited until we were located on the cars.  At half after four we were in motion for K.Y.  Slowly & easily we moved along while the rain poured down upon us and stretched out upon the car seats & floor were tired & weary soldiers awaiting the morning dawn.”
