When an infantry went into camp, it would form in a line of battle at a predetermined spot designated the "color line." The colors were planted atcenter of the line and the troops stacked their muskets. The regimental encampment was then formed "behind" the color line, each company establishing a company street back from the color line between two rows of tents.
In this case, the color line was ten paces from the lines of tents. From that spot, the kitchens were twenty paces below the tents, and an additional twenty from the police guard that were flanked by the sulter and n-c-s. An additional twenty paces and there would be the staff officers, including the surgeon. Twenty five paces from them would be the baggage train, one wagon for every company. Officers would have their own sinks and they were lined up 100 paces from their line of tents. Enlisted had their own sinks that were 150 paces above the color line and fifty paces beyond that would be the prisoner and guard pen. hope they were up wind.
