Edwin M. Stanton to Major-General John A. Dix, April 8, 1861
Washington, April
8,1861. Dear Sir , — I
am as much in the dark as yourself in regard to the actions and designs of the
present administration. This city has been in a great state of excitement about the
military and naval movements of the last few days, an...

Major-General John Sedgwick to his Sister, April 7, 1863
April 7, 1863. My dear sister: I received your letter this morning. I see that the Norfolk
Bank has made a dividend; I hope some of the others may do the same. The
President and Madam Lincoln are now on a visit in camp. I was invited to dine
with them to-da...

Francis Lieber to Major-General Henry W. Halleck, June 2, 1863
New York , June 2,1863. . . . Is the threat of General Burnside true, that he would
hang ten Confederate officers for every Union officer hung by the Confederates?
Whether true or not, you are aware that this is the spirit which generally
shows itself when ...

Diary of Mary Boykin Chesnut: January 21, 1864
Both of us were too ill to attend Mrs. Davis's reception. It
proved a very sensational one. First, a fire in the house, then a robbery — said
to be an arranged plan of the usual bribed servants there and some escaped
Yankee prisoners. To-day the Examiner is...

Jefferson Davis to Louis T. Wigfall, April 12, 1861
Montgomery , Alabama, April 12th, 1861. My dear friend, Your despatch reached me after I had directed one to be
sent, which anticipated your wish so fully that you might have imagined it to
be an answer if the dates had been reversed. I shall attend to your...

Diary of Corporal Alexander G. Downing: Thursday, September 15, 1864
The day has been
pleasant. It is reported that the rebel cavalry is in strong force in this
vicinity and it is a good thing that the expedition returned when it did. Source: Alexander
G. Downing, Edited by Olynthus B., Clark,  Downing’s Civil War Diary ,

Colonel Charles Russell Lowell to Josephine Shaw Lowell, September 9, 1864
Near Ripon , Sept. 9, 1864. I have stepped into a rather trying position now, — the
regular Brigade is hard to run; there are many prides and prejudices, — and
then, too, much more is expected from an officer commanding it, than from one
commanding a little...

Lieutenant-Colonel Rutherford B. Hayes to Lucy Webb Hayes, January 2, 1862
Fayetteville, Virginia , January 2, 1862. Dearest : — I
hope you all enjoyed New Year's Day. I dispatched you “a happy New Year’s”
which I suppose you got. We had nothing unusual. The weather still good.
Twenty-six fine days in December, and a start of two ...

Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: October 21, 1861
The enemy's papers represent that we have some 80,000 men in
Kentucky, and this lulls us from vigilance and effort in Virginia. The
Secretary of War knows very well that we have not 30,000 there, and that we are
not likely to have more. We supposed Kentucky...

Diary of Judith Brockenbrough McGuire: November 18, 1862
Another raid upon Fredericksburg; much mischief done! They
are preparing for a second evacuation of the town! The number of refugees will
be greatly increased, and where are they to go? Poor homeless wanderers,
leaving business and the means of support to t...

Diary of Sarah Morgan: April 19, 1862
Another date in Hal's short history! I see myself walking home
with Mr. McGimsey just after sundown, meeting Miriam and Dr. Woods at the gate;
only that was a Friday instead of a Saturday, as this. From the other side, Mr.
Sparks comes up and joins us. We s...

James Buchanan to Major-General John A. Dix, March 18, 1861
Private. Wheatland, March

Many thanks for your kind letter of the 14th instant. I shall ever recollect
with pleasure and satisfaction your brief sojourn with us at the White House — and
with gratitude the able and successful manner ...
