Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

“Oct. 4  It commenced to rain in the morning.  We were ordered in line of battle at 9 o’clock.  Recd orders from Gen. Ward with reference to marching.  We traveled with hard crackers & very poor, & sometimes no water.  We stopped at Shelbyville for the night.  At 9 oclock we laid down at night upon the ground.  I was so cold at night that I had to get up twice in the night to warm at the campfire. ”
