Monday, February 23, 1863

Cold.  Mrs. Terril washed.  George Cutter went to Marietta as a witness at Court.  His brother Charles came with him to spend the night--
The bombardment of Vicksburg has begun by our gunboats -- we must wait patiently on the Lord.  Shall not the Judge of all His earth do right.

Peggy's comments:
George Cutter worked for the Cutler family.  This entry makes me curious as to why he was going to court!
Vicksburg, Mississippi, was a Confederate-controlled fortress along the Mississippi River.  U. S. Grant led the Union Army of theTennessee against this stronghold.
