Camp on the Big Black River, Near Vicksburg, Mississippi

Last night we had a fine concert by the one of the military bands. Willy and Tommy have taken to camp life and have been adopted by the Thirteenth Regular Infantry Regiment. Some of the men had a tailor make suits for the boys and they wear them proudly. Willy thinks he is part of the regiment. I am enjoying this time with my family. It is peaceful here in the countryside away from all the complaints of the citizens.
