Friday, July 10, 1863

Still dark and gloomy but no rain.  The papers say that Lee is concentrating on the old Antietam battlefield and Meade is concentrating to fight him probably to-day & tomorrow.  How solemn the thoughts that a nation’s destinies depend on the struggle.  God help & deliver us.
A victory at Helena, Ark. on the 4th of July is reported.
