Journal Entry #1

Hello, My name is William Brown. I am a Union soldier fighting in the civil war. I was born in Illinois and I joined the war because I was a stay at home man and I had nothing else to do.  I thought the civil war was going to be short, but I was wrong. This war has been going on for many days, and I cannot keep track.

Journal Entry # 5

Hello friend, camp life is hard out here and it has been a struggle. Some things I do to pass time is that I usually sleep and play cards with fellow soldiers. There isn't a food I like here. Sometimes I get nothing and sometimes I get hardtack and salted meat.

Journal Entry # 7

We couldn't do anything. For any infections the arm of area of infection was cut off. For anything else we could either cut the body part with a rusted knife or give him pain killers till he died. There are others that no one knows about right now. There is also a lot of sickness in the camp like diarrhea. It seems like that kills more than actuality the battle.

Photo Prompt: Home

We won and I was finally home. I bought some good bread and the money that I earned there with me for my family.  I was so happy I was home, safe and sound. When I got home it turned out someone attacked the house but nobody was Injured or hurt.
