Journal Entry #3
The description of life at camp is very simple, miserable. Every day we go through the same things, eat, sleep, drill. Every day we do that and if we refuse we get beaten. Having fun in camp out here in Charlotte is nearly impossible. Things that are fun get repeated every day such as cards and eventually get boring. Well I'll try to survive life here as best as possible.

This letter is another letter about camp. Passing time hear has gotten easier than last time. Now I write music and meditate in camp a lot. I eat a lot hard tack since its common. Sometimes you can still taste the worms inside of the hard tack.

My favorite song was Eatin' Gobber Peas because it was really funny and catchy.
Remix to Sail
This is how I shoot my gun
I do it with my only thumb
Blame it on the Yankees babe
Maybe I should cry for help
Maybe I should amputate myself
Blame it on the Yankees
This is how an angel dies
I blame it on my own supply
Blame it on my cavalry baby
Journal Entry #7
Living in camp my eyes are scared. I've seen many people die and I've seen way worse. During camp I have seen many people die of led piosioing, people die of starvation, I can go on for days. It is tough knowing all these people die but I just stay unhurt, I feel selfish.
Journal Entry #8
Wow what I have been through. After finally surrendering I'm able to come home to you. Being a confederate I have witnessed many defeats but also witnesses many victories. I am not disapointed that we lost since all slaves. I have never been for having slaves but now I get to see you.
