Diary of Judith W. McGuire: March 4, 1862
In statu quo as far as our armies are concerned. The Nashville, a Confederate steamer, that has been watched by eight Federal war vessels,
came into port the other day, at Beaufort, North Carolina, after many
hairbreadth escapes, bringing a rich burden. SOU...

Diary of Corporal Alexander G. Downing: Thursday, May 5, 1864
Reveille sounded at 4 o'clock and by daylight we were on the
boats. At 8 o'clock we started up the Tennessee river, our destination, we
suppose, being Clifton, Tennessee. Our fleet consists of eleven transports and
two gunboats, one of them in advance and t...

Lieutenant-Colonel Theodore Lyman to Elizabeth Russell Lyman, Friday, October 14, 1864
October 14, 1864 How shall I vote? I
don't know that I shall be given the chance; but, if I am, I shall vote for the
blue-blooded Abraham. It was with a feeling of depression that I heard the
first rumors that the Dems had carried Pennsylvania, Ohio, and In...

Diary of Mary Boykin Chesnut: September 2, 1861
Mr. Miles says he is not going anywhere at all, not even
home. He is to sit here permanently — chairman of a committee to overhaul
camps, commissariats, etc., etc. We exchanged our ideas of Mr. Mason, in which we agreed
perfectly. In the first place, he has...

Diary of Margaret Junkin Preston: June 3, 1862
Yesterday, Bro. Wm., Anna, and the children came in; W. was
only here a short time. It was very sweet, however, to have even this little
visit from some of my own kin. I feel so lonely and isolated. How I long often
to fly to dear Father and Julia for a lit...

Major-General George G. Meade to Margaretta Sergeant Meade, May 3, 1865
Richmond, Va., May 3, 1865. I arrived here about 11 A. M. to-day, in advance of the
army, to make arrangements for its passing through this city. It is to have a
triumphal march through, and be received by all the troops now in the city. As soon after getti...

Diary of Margaret Junkin Preston: June 4, 1862
No letter from Mr. P. today; no mail from Winchester.   . . . Of three of the boys who used to live at
my Father's, one is a cripple for life; another is a prisoner of war ; a third
lies in a nameless grave, if indeed he ever had burial; and the most
distin...

Camp Tompkins, Near Gauley Bridge , October 19, 1861. Dear Uncle : —
It is late Saturday night. I am away from my regiment at General Rosecrans'

waiting events, not yet knowing wh...

Major-General George G. Meade to Margaretta Sergeant Meade, May 5, 1865
Richmond, Va. , May 5, 1865. It was intended we should march through the city to-day, but
the condition of the men after their long march from Burksville, and the
appearance of the weather, threatening a storm, the march was postponed till
to-morrow. I thin...

Diary of Judith W. McGuire: March 3, 1862
Last Friday was the third day appointed by our President as
a day of fasting and prayer within nine months. The churches were filled to
overflowing, with, I trust, heart-worshippers, and I believe that God, in his
great mercy, will direct our Government and...

Diary of Corporal Alexander G. Downing: Wednesday, May 4, 1864
We lay here all day awaiting the boats. Nathan Chase, a
veteran of our company, got into trouble with some men of the Fifty-third
Indiana Regiment and one of them shot him twice, one ball going through his
right arm and the other taking effect in his mouth,...

Diary of Judith W. McGuire: Wednesday, February 23, 1862
Notwithstanding the violence of the rain yesterday, the
Capitol Square, the streets around it, and the adjacent houses, were crowded.
The President stood at the base of that noble equestrian statue of Washington,
and took the oath which was taken by the “Fa...
