Marched to Catlett Station

Today at Brandy Station: June 14, 1863

From the diary of Edwin Weist, 20th Indiana Infantry Regiment

Cadlit station. Revellie at 3. o.clock this morning with orders to be ready to march at 4. Did not get started till 4 in the evening however. Marched to Cadlit station where we arrived about 9. o.clock. The road we passed over was very familliar to me who had been over so often. The house at wich Gen. Kearny had his head quarters is in sight.

The 20th Indiana -- assigned to Brig. Gen. J.H. Hobart Ward's Brigade, Maj. Gen. David Birney's First Division of Dan Sickle's Third Corps -- has left Stafford County and now is moving up the Rappahannock, shadowing the Army of Northern Virginia as both armies move towards Gettysburg.
