Day 1: May 19, 1863

In the morning I get up and I put on some clothes that I had made before the war started. I go to the little box that we have for the table and had  a little piece of bread. After I had my food I clean the Floors. I make some more clothes for me and my mom and my brothers. In the afternoon we go to the little box and we have a little plate that I carved out of wood that we put are corn on. after we ate all of our food we make sure we give are people that served some clean clothes and healing cream   . after that we get some water from the river and washed the plates and we got our hair wet. After we all cleaned up we get out some blankets that me and my mother made and we all  laid on the floor all really close.
