I hope all will join in with the stories of the Soldiers lives during Christmas Seasons in the Civil War.
My first is from the Regimental Series of the 52nd Virgina Infantry on the Allegheny Mountain page 10.

"Our cabins are very comfortable. We have two rows of bunks on each side of
the room... One row above the other... Are just as wide as our house at home
and nearly as long... 18 feet. Thousands of families are raised in worse
houses.... The men are all busy, some fortifying, some chopping down timber,
some building cabins... Our bakery will start this week and then we will have
good bread.. – Capt. Hottel."
