Charles S. Buell, diary

September 12, 1862

“This morning I started in search of my Regt. And found them after a march of 3 miles just packing up for a start. My things were all right. Friday morning we started for Frederick City. Followed up the Baltimore and Ohio RR. The sun poured down in fury upon us. We reached the city just at dark with but two men wounded. The citizens and girls fairly leapt and cried for joy. They invited us into the Hospital and treated us to wine and good things. We had hot tea and warm biscuit with butter."
