"Nothing of importance has 
transpired in the Twenty-fourth since I wrote you last, except the 
regular routine of camp life. The Regiment went to Selma, a little town 
about five miles from camp, on a light trip. They parted on the 4th and 
came back the 13th. The Brigade was thrown out as a picket. The boys 
amused themselves while there in making briar-root pipes, gobbling up 
sheep, calves, porkers, etc., and playing base ball, which afforded 
them a good deal of fun. "
