Civil War Diaries, October 11, 1862

Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

“Oct. 11  Confiscated 20 lbs of white sugar, plenty of potatoes, lard, wine, & such other delicacies.  Some of the boys slaughtered pigs.  Others bought of the darkies eggs, butter & chickens.  Such picket duty would make fat men of frames.  We were relieved from duty in the afternoon, returned to camp & changed quarters for a prettier & more agreeable position where we supported a battery that guarded the arsenal.”
