Eight Regiments are in camp.
Two or three of the above listed are not yet mustered in. Several more who have enlisted are daily expected into camp to join the company.
But very little sickness has occured, and that was caused by carelessness. All soldiers should go to camp with warm clothing.(Hoosac Valley News & Transcript, September 18, 1862)
