My Civil War Journal

I am a union soldire. I dont have much but I dont want the slavery to spread up here at North. Although I havent seen slavery I know its bad because of a book and I dont like one bit.  

Jorge: Drunk

Grace: Soldier

Anish: Soldier


Bryce: The union has just one a battle and are very played out, but are still celebrating back at camp

Grace: BULLY!

Anish: Be quiet or I will shove this Arkansas toothpick into you!

Jorge: My possums! You all look ugly! (Falls over in chair)

Grace: Wow you look tight Jorge, why?

Anish: He must have drank a lot of tar water

Anish: If he doesn't calm down i’ll have to load some hornets in my pepper box and shoot him, or put him in the jailbird

Grace: I’m so played out. I think I’m gonna hit the hay.

Anish: You better skedaddle before captain come back

Anish: Hunkey Dorey, I get to arrest someone!

                            Dear parents,

It is so tragic here. I wish I would of have never signed up. But then when I think about it its not about if I want to its that I have to do it, so slavery can stop from spreading up in the North. The punishments are so cruel and easy to get, 5 people today as the first day got a punishment that they will never ever again will do bad at . I am just going to do what am suppose to do that way I wont get the punishment that the other guys got. We also don't stop until everybody does it right and yet we repeat it like every time.

This is a pic of our practice.

Jeremiah, when you chose to do it because the cause of the north what caused you to make that choice?

Jeremiah, looking back what is something in your life that you are proud or
happy about? am happy that I helped the confederate and had courage for helping them with the war.

Jeremiah, what is one thing about your life you wish had been different? I wish that my mother hasn't become sick. Also to have someone else to help her out when I wasnt there. Also to not have gone to war and helped her out .

Ask a question that makes Jeremiah talk about one of the issues brought
up at the end of the story you chose to create. That his mother passed away.

life as a soldier ain't no fun

all you do is shoot your gun

running and running for your life

you will be scarred for life

blood everywhere,bleeding everywhere

running with no idea where you are

running running really far

I shot my gun

I miss

I get shot

I fall

I cry

i die

In my free time I liked to play cards because it killed time when I was board.

I liked to eat was beef and pork.

I witnessed people with diarrhea. It was horrible. I wish I had no eyes when I saw the doctor make the decease even worse. So many of soldiers died from deceases. I am thankful I did not get sick by any decease. It was hard to eat because there was not much and the water was nasty with so much bacteria

I am now coming back home because I want no more part of this and the enlistment  is over. My three months are over.  The war was horrible. So many dead people after one war. Wishing I wont die here. But as I get closer to home and see some houses. They look as the same as they were before I left. That was good. I thought that it was going to be different, but it didn't.
