The 96th Pennsylvania in the Overland Campaign: May 11, 1864

From Corporal Henry Keiser’s Diary: 

Wednesday, May 11, 1864.  Laid in the woods and were shelled until ten o’clock today, when we moved about one mile to the left and commenced throwing up rifle pits. It rained considerable this afternoon.  At 4 p.m. we were marched back to our old position of last night, with the prospect of staying here for the night.  Started in as Quarter Master Sergeant today.
