Nervous President Awaits War News

September 16, 1862

President Lincoln telegraphs Pennsylvania Governor Andrew G. Curtin: “What do you hear from Gen. McClellan’s army? We have nothing from him to-day.”  Later, Lincoln writes Curtin:  “Since telegraphing you, despatch came from Gen. McClellan, dated 7 o’clock this morning. Nothing of importance happened with him yesterday. This morning he was up with the enemy at Sharpsburg, and was waiting for heavy fog to rise.”
