This chapter talks about the army of Gen. Burnside, which only engaged in little more than cavalry reconnaissance; and the Jeff Davis Artillery, which was also finding an overabundance of time to be a problem. They had only long days of winter to look forward to. Reorganizations and promotions in both armies were made. Furthermore, a steady rain struck, and before long the ponderous Federal machine was literally stuck in the mud. Bondurant, Bates, and their company were subjected to a full month of the tedium and fixed routine that went with life in winter quarters, and the seasons still had a long way to go.
