We all got up before daylight and breakfasted and moved by the right flank. At 7 o’clock the artillery opened up on the city and every cannon on the line was brought into action. After a few hours of heavy cannonading we marched on to the city. The Nebraskans and South Dakotas had quite a lively skirmish in which several were killed and quite a good many wounded. We then took the City [of Malolos] at 11 a.m. with very little fighting and went into camp. The wagon train moved in a few hours later and went into camp on the outskirts of the city. Here we had plenty to eat such as chickens and bananas and plenty of good rainwater to drink.
