nearly all day and
night.. The next day was
very cool and since then
it has been very cool..

had a very hard shower
lasting all night..
Last Thursday a board
was organized for the

get an opportunity to get
mine in. I tried next day
but failed. I went again
on Saturday but our brig
ade having gone on picket
the business was postponed.
Tuesday morning the brigade
came in from picket and
at two P.M. the 1st & 2nd
Divs started out on a raid

It is said that they
went in company with the
2nd Corps crosing the river
above Bermuda Hundred
and yesterday morning
attacking the rebs at Malvern
Hill driving them from
their fortifications and
taking one fort contain
ing four heavy siege guns

They were assisted by two
gun boats who as usual
did excellent service.
Tuesday afternoon
together with Graham
and Garey I made a trip
to City Point on the
“Ironsides”
While waiting there
to return Gen. Grant
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864, Page: 11

Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864

came in on a small
tug from towards Bermu
da Hundred. Not an officer
nor an orderly was with
him. but alone and unat
tended he sat quietly
smoking his cigar..
We had a very light
shower of rain lst night.

Sunday July 31st
The past three days have
been very warm and yester
day was the hottest we have
yet seen while last night
was so warm that one could
scarcely sleep.. Thursday after
noon I went with [Gary?] to
City Point on no particular
errand.

Friday afternoon an alarm
was raised. that a party
of rebel cavalry were menacing
our rear and it was deemed
advisable to tear up the small
camp remaining of the regts
and on coming back
from the landing we found
the field near our camp
full of cavalry. while wagons

Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864

and ambulances were filling
the field where the other
two brigade trains were
parked.. Yesterday morning
it was learned that our
cavalry was about two miles
from City Point and sup
plies were sent to them. and
about noon orders were
received for that all here

that were able for duty
should join their regiments
and as the train was to be
detained with the command
two days rations for the
drivers were sent out.
Heavy reports of artillery
and musketry were heard
from the front early yes
terday morning. and

reports came here later
in the day that our forces
blew up two forts and cap
tured one line of works
belonging to the rebs
yesterday morning
Noticed this morning a
new gunboat going up the
river which at first I
supposed to be the Atlanta.
but on the second thought
could not tell.

Monday Aug. 1st 1864
Just after dinner yester
day Lt Ballard told me
that everything would be
ready to move at 3½ P.M.
and of course we were
busy enough. That part
of the train which had
gone to the command with
supplies returned and

starting about 5 PM we
reached here about 9.
We are now a short dis
tance from the R.R. a mile
from City Point.. Only our
division train left Light House
and on reaching the camp
where we lay when near
here a month ago we found
our brigade encamped

there. The reserve brigade
was near by while it was
said that the 2nd brigade
was shipping. It is gener
ally understood that our
division is going to Mary
land.. Our brigade & the
Reserve have gone towards
City Point. this morning

The night before last Lieut
Loomis received a letter
from George O’Brien, Billy’s
brother saying that he
had received a letter
from Billy himself writ
ten in Richmond in
which he said that he
was recovering from his
wound received at Ash

land two months ago..
This was most welcome
news to all. and very much
surprised everyone and
especially those who saw
him at the time he was wounded..

Friday Aug. 5th /64
Everything is working very

slowly. It took until
yesterday morning to load
the troops of the 2nd and 3d
brigades. but our brigade
all loaded yesterday and
last night and now there
is nothing but the train
to load. Division HdQrtrs
and Ammunition trains
are loading this morning
and the ambulance trains.
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864, Page: 15

will loads next and perhaps
tomorrow we may load..
Tuesday all was quiet: the
Res. Brig. was loading.. Wednes
day morning the 2nd Brig
commenced loading. That
day the board for the
inspection and buying of
horses met again to buy
the remainder of the horses

in the brigade. The horses
did not pass so well as
they did before. many horses
which before would have
passed as first class went
as low as the 3d class.
Seeing this I did not ex
pect to get more than 2nd
class price for mine. but
waiting until nearly

all were sold. I took
him in and readily enough
passed him as first class
Yesterday morning Hank R
[illegible in original] and I took it into
our heads to go out to the
front and soon we were
off. We went first to Gen
Warren’s Hd Qrtrs with
an errand from Lt Ballard
to Lieut Wheeler
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864, Page: 16

Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864

Then to the Art Res. of the 2nd
Corps. from there to Gen Wilcox’s
Hd Qrts then to 2nd Brig 3d Div
9th Corps to find some acquain
tances in the 2nd [illegible in original] and 1st
Sharp Shooters.. I found that
Dyer had been detailed at
Brig. HdQrtrs and accordingly
I started to hunt him up.
Any one who has ever attemp

ted to find any place in
a camp can imagine what
kind of time I had. I was
directed from the camp
to HdQrtrs and thought
I could find it in the
piece of woods to which I
was directed. but on getting
to the woods. I found one
HdQrts which belonged to

another division. Then I com
menced inquiring and ran
all over the woods before I could
find it. At last I found
Tom and after visiting at his
tent a while we started out
to see the works..
The works commenced in
this piece of woods. the trees
of which were all scarred
by shot and shell

Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864, Page: 17

Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864

Every tent. large and small
had an enbankment thrown
up to protect it from the front
Col [illegible in original] cmdg.. Brig
had his HdQrtr directly in
the fire line of works. On
leaving headquarters to go into
the works we struck into
a deep ditch with em
bankments on each

side which served as a
road and from which
several other roads led
to all parts of the works
From [illegible in original] battery
we had a good view of
the position in front of
the 9th and [5th?] Corps.
Directly in front of the
Center of the 9th Corps was

the remains of the fort
blown up last Saturday
morning. The whole line
for more than a mile
in length could be very
plainly seen.. We were about
forty rods from our outer
works which appeared
to be about 18 or 20 rods
from those of the Confederates
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864, Page: 18

Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864
Edwin R. Havens Diary July 28, 1864 through October 24, 1864

Farther back on the crest
of the hill and a little to
their right the rebs had a
small fort. and still farther
a very large fort while
on the left was another
large fort. Away on their
right opposite the line
of the [illegible in original] corps were two
other large forts and there

we could see large camps
[illegible in original]
The [illegible in original] R R. ran
through the centre of their
lines and the left of the
9th and right of the [8th? 5th?] corps
joined on this road..
There was no artillery
firing anywhere along the
lines and in front of the
fifth corps all was quiet

and our men and the
Johnnies appeared as
friendly as brothers..
but in front of the 9th
a constant and annoying
picket firing was kept
up.. After staying long
enough to see the works
and hear [illegible in original] tell the
scenes that had transpired
at different points on

that ground we return
ed.. When we arrived
in camp we found that
Lieut. Ballard and [Brass?]
had both gone with HdQrts
and that Lieut White was
left in charge of the
train
Yesterday a small
party of rebs commenced

firing into our vessels
a short distance from
City Point and com
pelled the mail boat
to return. The gun
boats pitched into
them and drove them
off.. without having
done any damage to
anything of any impor

tance so far as I have
learned.. The 3d Cav
Div. now lies a short
distance from here and
it is reported are going
to ship for some point
as soon as our train is
off. This morning I went
to City Point to turn in
some boots & stockings
that we did not want

While there I saw a
Lieut of the [illegible in original] Corps who
said that their train
was going to embark
soon for Washington..
The weather is very
warm and dry.. yet..


Saturday Aug 1.3.
The past week has been
a busy one for all, and
the busy time is not
yet over. Saturday morn

nearer to City Point where
the [illegible in original] were taken from
the wagons and everything
got ready to load.

their cargo. We had
a very pleasant trip
although it was long
enough to suit me.
We passed Fort Pow

small fort on the left
bank of the James

We went away to the right
towards the [Brookville?]
Pike till we struck
the Georgetown & Rock
ville road and then
went to within less
than two miles of the
latter village and
then struck back
towards the Rockville
road. We stopped at
three or four houses
but made no great
sight. On arriving
at the train we found
it hooked up and
ready to move again
We had had a smart
little shower during
the afternoon and the
roads were in pretty
good condition.
We marched to Rock
ville and then turning
to the right struck

and warmest march
we have ever made
The day is as very
hot and dusty and
the train marched
so fast that many

Friday August 19th 1864 We lay at Harpers Ferry
until this morning waiting for orders to move
and once or twice had orders to be ready to move
at daylight. We are now near Charlestown noted as
the place where John Brown was confined tried
and executed for his attack on Harpers Ferry.
It is a village as large as Culpepper and
more beautiful and giving me quite a surprise
as I was not prepared to find so large an
inland village.. On arriving here two days
forage and rations were sent to the
command which is near Berryville
On our way here we met a squad of cavalry
guarding 280 rebel prisoners and a little
while ago a squad of cavalry came in
with two stands of rebel colors.
