Civil War Diaries, October 21, 1862

Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

Oct. 21  I woke feeling pretty well but soon after breakfast a fever made itself manifest accompanied a head-ache.  I went to Dr. Potter who prescribed rest.  I put on my overcoat wrapped myself in my blanket & after quite an effort started a faint perspiration.  I ate a little supper & lay down to sleep on soft bed of straw.”
