army life from a soldiers journal incidents sketches and record of a union

Book cover
Turning occasionally to my army journal, after these many years, the sketches written from time to time by the light of the evening camp fires, appear to me, deeply interesting. They may, perhaps, be entertaining to others. The preservation of the little memorandum books in which my army journal was written is almost miraculous. The knapsack in wliicli tliey were carried, was often left behind on some forced march, or just before a battle. Other knapsacks were lost.
But through all the varied changes, dangers and vicis- situdes of three 3'ears of a soldier's life at the front, on the march, in bivouac and battle, this knapsack was never so mJslaid or lost as not to bring along its little army journal. – From the Preface.
