My name is Elizabeth Stuart. I am from Indiana. My age is 23. I chose to be with the union. June 1,1862. I live with my mom, Jacky Stuart and my grandpa, George Stuart and he is stationed right now in Connecticut.
Day 2 June 1st, 1862.
When my mom and I wake up in the morning we go down to the old creek bathe then we come back. When we get back we make food or our family and the soldiers. I finally get done with helping mom get the food done for the soldiers that are staying at our house, until they have to move camp. I run outside to do my morning work around the barn. This includes feed the animals, pick eggs, and milking the cow. Then I have to do my afternoon chores where I pick our food from the garden and I also pick weeds from the flower beds/ water them also.
