Civil War Diaries, November 7, 1862

Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

“Nov. 7  It commenced to snow & sleet in the morning & continued so through the day.  One of the Sergeants went downtown & bought some cornmeal & sweet potatoes.  We ate pretty heartily of them, which did me no particular good.

I wrote Mother a letter & read 4 from DuPage.  I did not feel well through the day.”
