"In the East, although the Army of the Potomac had followed Lee's beaten army into Virginia, things remained relartively quiet after Gettysburg.  With 50,000 combined
casulties in that battle, neither side was healthy enough to do more than rest and refit.  Here, in August 1863, the drummers of the 93rd New York, veterans of Gettysburg,
drill along the Rappahannock River in Virginia."
(David E. Roth, The Civil War 1861-1865, Zigzag Publishing, 1997 at p. 168)
