November 16, 1862: Resumed Our March

Diary Entry:
Sunday resumed our march this morning at an early hour. Our route lay through a hilly, but [not] quite as barren a country as that we passed through yesterday. We halted about 4 O’clock, and encamped in a woods of much better timber than any I have before seen in Virginia. To day we marched about 14 miles, yesterday, 9 or 10 miles.
