Easter Sunday - Forming a Line of Battle

Sunday, April 20, 1862

Easter Sunday afforded no rest for the regiment, who was ordered to march under arms and form a line of battle for the entire day. After turning in briefly during the evening, the regiment was ordered into battle formation again until 1:00 AM on Monday.1
