Day 1: July 3, 1863
Dear Diary, Today seemed to be a decent day. This morning I went to feed the chickens and oxen. In the afternoon, I went to collect eggs and then, I went around town to try to get anything I could to send to our soldiers. I was able to collect many socks and miscellaneous items. After I made it through most of the part of town, I went home and put a few things in a blanket I had just finished. I tied it together then took the carriage to the post office. There is a small chance that it will make it to any of our soldiers, but I must try.
