Diary of Orrin Brown, Savannah, Georgia
We had a freezing cold night and the Boys are shivering around their camp fires this morning. We had an inspection of arms at 7 AM. Then 7 of our compay went down town to meeting but could not get across the bridge without a pass. The major would have given us but he thought we would not need any so we were disappointed. We have no Chaplin in our Regt. so we do not have any preaching. I wrote 2 letters one to N. E. Brown, and one to E. H. Brown. It is quite cold again tonight.
Happy New Year to you and yours. Thank you for following along on Pvt. Orrin Brown’s March to the Sea. Please stay tuned as Gen. Sherman & the troops point north towards home, and a long-fought peace.
