A move to the Rappahannock

Today at Warrenton Junction; July 31, 1863

From the diary of Colonel Charles S. Wainwright

We have now been in this spot for nearly a week, so I suspect no one will be sorry to move out of it tomorrow, which we have orders to do in the direction of Rappahannock Station. The weather is really warm, hot one you may call, and this low spot very close, with the woods very close. The whole army army I believe is to move up to the line of the river.

The army would indeed move up to the Rappahannock; and while some would disagree, I state that the last phase of the Gettysburg campaign is about to begin.


  1. In my modest opinion--Col. Charles Wainwright is to be believed in about everything he says. Thanks, Mike, for quoting from the best single CW diary (published) that I have ever read... And one more thing about Wainwright: He did not suffer fools, no matter the rank.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!
