Page 158, Farnham diary entry for 3/14/1863 reads "cut bullet matches for my rifle" and should be "cut bullet patches." The original entry was "cut -atches for my rifle" and the writer went back and placed an insert mark at the dash and wrote "bullets" as a superscript, leading to my confusion. The character at the dash was a p rather than an m. Thanks to a sharp eyed reader for pointing this out.
