One hundred fifty years ago, on August 28, 1863, Capt. Eathan Allen Pinnell of the 8th Missouri Infantry (C.S.) wrote in his diary:

Left the hospital and went to the convalescent camp at Camp Price where I found the baggage trains of our entire army, which looks considerably like a retreat was in contemplation, though I suppose, Gen’l Price has ordered them here to have them out of the way and be ready for any emergency.
