“Friday, April 17, 1863 Quite a fine day. Boys all playing ball. Co. drills in the afternoon.

“Wednesday, April 22, 1863 Cool with some appearances of a storm. Played ball today and got somewhat tired.”

G. S. Stuart and A. M. Jakeman, Jr., eds., John H. Stevens: Civil War Diary (Miller Books, Acton ME, 1997), page 127. Provided by Michael Aubrecht, May 15, 1863. Note: we need to ascertain Stevens’ home and unit; the 9th PA lists a soldier by this name as a 1st Lt., as does the 5th MI, as does the 5th ME, which seems the most likely unit.. Text is not found via Google Books in June 2009.
