Fortress RosecansLocomotive and train arrived from Nashville today... The shrill whistle evoked hearted cheers from all quarters of our camps. It conveyed to us... that we are linked again with home and friends by an iron roadway over which may come plentiful rations, letters, newspapers, tobacco, whiskey, and numerous so-called luxuries which Soldiers love so well and miss so much when the wagons are overtaxed in carrying only the necessities of life.
