tentage was required, pup tents for the front and large tents and flies at the camps.
Behind them came a third, a big quartermaster's wagon, drawn by six mules and loaded with tentage and rations.
We travelled light, with no tentage, and when it rained at night we curled up in our bedding under our slickers.
They toiled constantly until they had every wounded officer and man supplied with tentage, cots, blankets, and clean clothes.
There were no barracks in Port Tampa, and it was too late to go into camp even if we had our tentage with us, which we did not.
