John's journal


Day 1, my name is John Yank I am 21. I live in Boston with my wife and my son.  I have a farm.  Th farm has cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, and also corn.  Life On the farm it is quiet and mellow. I am a Sergeant.  I would serve the rebels so slave can help on the farm but the way they treat the slaves are horrible and I would not want to kill my friends so I pick to serve the Union.  That is why I serve the Union.

Day 2, I arrived at the camp and i sure did see a lot of fresh fish.  They probable not horse senses but  I am pretty sure they are toeing the mark.

Day 3, so far all we have been doing was drills and drills but I am pretty sure it is for a good cause.   I have been seeing some people that are bald with a sign saying thief on it.  I find it kind of funny.

Day 4,

Interview question 1

Jeremiah, when you did chose to lie to the recruiter,

what caused you to make that choice?

He wanted to be in the war

Interview question2

Jeremiah, looking back what is something in your life that you are proud or

happy about? Serving in the war.

Interview question 3

Jeremiah, what is one thing about your life you wish had been different?
To be on the union side
Interview question 4 (Look back at the italicized section at your "ending")

Jeremiah, how did you feel when you knew that brother die?

Ask a question that makes Jeremiah talk about one of the issues brought

up at the end of the story you chose to create.

I felt sad and angry because now I have no friend in battle.

These are some of the people from camp eating break fast.

Day 5, Camp life is alright I guess.  It is boring sometimes but it is also fun too.  we play cards or we talk.

These our dead Union troop that die for there county at Vicksburg. .

when soldiers get shot they die or are injuries or get led poisoning so they cut off the limb where you shot.  Also how some soldiers die is from sickness.  Because when one soldiers get sick it is very contagious.

A picture of my house

When I got home my friends and family greeted me.  Sadly all of the crops are failing but at lest nobody die or got hurt and that was about it.
