Table of contents

Our regiment was paid off this afternoon, and we received our discharge. This makes us free men again and we at once left Camp McClellan for town. I went to the Davis House and stopped for the night. Hatch came to Davenport for a load of us. The Sixteenth Iowa arrived this morning from Louisville, Kentucky. The men of our brigade, on being discharged, seem to be scattering to the four ends of the earth; even the boys of Company E, after bidding one another farewell, are going in all directions.

Friday, 21st —It rained all day. No pay yet. Most of the boys are staying down in -town. There is nothing of importance. Wednesday, 19th —Our night along the lake shore was quite cool. We arrived at Davenport at 5 p. A large crowd of citizens was at the station to receive us, among them our old colonel, William Hall, who gave us an address of welcome. We then marched up to old Camp McClellan, where we shall remain till we get our discharge and pay, which we expect in two or three days.

The Second and Seventh Iowa have just received their pay and are striking out for home. Tuesday, 18th —We are still pushing on towards home and everything is all right. Our train ran all night, except when standing on some sidetrack.

We arrived at Michigan City a little after dark and changed cars for Chicago. Monday, 17th —We had our last reveille early this morning. On our way up the river we passed the headquarters of Generals Logan and Belknap, and each delivered a short speech to us. We had fairly good passenger cars, but the train was a slow one, as it often had to switch onto sidings to let other trains pass. We were relieved from all duty and turned over to the general quartermaster the regimental teams and everything that does not belong to the individual officers or men.
