On the Move in Virginia

Saturday, July 26, 1863

After a two-day rest at Bloomfield the Twentieth Massachusetts broke camp early Tuesday morning and marched to Paris, Virginia by nightfall. The Twentieth moved rapidly each day, arriving at Linden on Wednesday, Markham Station on Thursday, and White Plains on Friday. This afternoon the Twentieth arrived at Germantown for a three-day rest.1
