Journal Entry One:

Dear diary,

Today men came to my house just outside of Jackson Mississippi, they talked to my father about the war with Union, I knew that the south had succeeded but I didn't know that there was a war. The men said they needed soliders and my father gladly handed me an my brothers over to him.

Journal Entry Two:

Union: You filthy Grayback! Skedaddle off my land!

Confederate: Well you yanky better give up, or else you’ll become a Hardknocks Jailbird!

Union: I won’t give in to you, I am fit as a fiddle and living perfectly as a Union soldier.

Confederate: Well we were all Uppity after Bullrun what happened there, seems like our fighting is Toeing The Mark.

Union: The rebels winning another battle is as Scarce as A Hen’s Teeth! You Confederates are so weak you are played out from one small battle!

Confederate: You must be WallPapered for thinking that!

Union: You better watch what you’re saying, after I’m done with you, you’re gonna need Sawbones to put you back together!

Confederate: You wanna be Whipped you yanky!?!?

Union: Doesn’t matter much, I’m a hard case.

Confederate: Hows ‘bout I introduce you to my PepperBox?

Dear Mother,

Today at camp I had a  brutal day, first I woke up then was put right into training where I stood around and twirled my gun for an hour then I went back to camp to find a squirrel was in my tent, I chased it off then continued to eat my lunch. I took a picture of it. I hope that I see you again before I die.

Yours Truly, Everett

Journal Entry Five:

Dear George,

This morning after the drill me and the guys bet money on a chicken fight. I bet my money on ol' one eye, sadly enough I lost six dollars and ol' one eye is no longer with us. Then I watched as the guys raced each other's lice across the table. I hope I will see you again.

Your Friend, Everett

Journal Entry Six:

This is how I shoot a gun.

I do it with my own right thumb.

So blame it on the Yankees baby.

This is how an angel dies.

I blame it on my own supply.

So blame it on my Calvary baby.

Maybe I should cry for help

Maybe I should amputate myself

Blame it on the Yankees

Journal Entry Seven:

Dear Diary,

Today was not a good day, I found that in my cabin one of my friends Steven got diarrhea I fear that he might die soon he is weak and loosing lots of liquids by the minute. While I walked away from the cabin I could hear his moans and groans.

Dear Diary,

Today I was told that my company is coming home after a hard two and a half years, I am coming home to you mother. I know that father has passed so on the farm it will just be me and you, I cannot contain myself with the happiness that has come to me. I can not wait to see you again. Even though I have changed so much and have seen things that no man should ever have to see, I get to see the most beautiful woman in the world at least one more time before I die.
