Colin Petro of the 2nd Infantry Regiment Of the Union. April 11, 1861. Born in Virginia. Day 1 of home front.

Its not as bad as I thought it would be. Its been pretty much drills. The morning drills include formation drills, guard mount drills, marching drills, and one mile run. In the afternoon, after lunch we then go do push ups, sit ups, another run, and then we practice bayonet drills. I helped prepare the meals with the cook and count the supplies. So its been quiet. I miss you. Hope the war ends be for anything happens though...
