Diary of Judith Brockenbrough McGuire: May 18, 1864
W. B. certainly captured. I thank God for it, as the least
of casualties. Generals Lee and Grant still fighting. On the south side, Beauregard has driven Butler to Bermuda
Hundreds, where he is under shelter of his gunboats. Oh! when will this fearful
state...

Diary of Sarah Morgan: Sunday, January 4, 1863
One just from Baton Rouge tells us that my presentiment
about our house is verified; Yankees do inhabit it, a Yankee colonel and his
wife. They say they look strangely at home on our front gallery, pacing up and
down. . . . And a stranger and a Yankee occup...

Diary of 5th Sergeant Alexander G. Downing: Sunday, March 19, 1865
We were off at 7 a. m. and marched ten miles through fine
country. The roads were good and no swamps to cross. They had good crops here
last year, and there was plenty of forage, so this evening we had our
haversacks replenished. There was some heavy cannon...

Diary of 5th Sergeant Alexander G. Downing: Tuesday, March 21, 1865
We advanced our line of battle a half mile, driving in the
rebel skirmishers. Our loss was quite large in killed and wounded. All our
artillery was brought into action and at times this afternoon the roar of
cannon was fearful; but the rebels made no reply....

Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: May 16, 1862
McClellan is intrenching — that is, at least, significant of
a respite, and of apprehension of attack. SOURCE: John Beauchamp Jones,  A Rebel War Clerk's

Diary of 5th Sergeant Alexander G. Downing: Saturday, March 18, 1865
We started at 8 a. m. and marched twelve miles, the Third
Division being in the advance. We had to cross a swamp four miles wide and the
water in places was knee-deep. Our progress was slow because we had to lay a
great deal of corduroy so that the artiller...

Diary of 5th Sergeant Alexander G. Downing: Monday, March 20, 1865
Reveille sounded at 1 a. m. At 3 o'clock with the Fifteenth
Corps in front, we took up the line of march and moved forward twenty-one
miles, where we found the rebels fortified on the west side of the Neuse river
near Bentonville. We drove them back inside ...

Companies E and F of the Eleventh Iowa were sent out at 6
o'clock this morning on the skirmish line, but there were no rebels to be seen
in our front. They left during the night, crossing the Neuse river, and
retreating towards Raleigh, the state capital. K...

Gen. Lee has admonished Major Griswold on the too free
granting of passports. Will it do any good? SOURCE: John Beauchamp Jones,  A Rebel War Clerk's

Diary of Mary Boykin Chesnut: June 1, 1865
The New York Herald quotes General Sherman as
saying, “Columbia was burned by Hampton's sheer stupidity.'” But then who
burned everything on the way in Sherman's march to Columbia, and in the line of
march Sherman took after leaving Columbia? We came, for t...
