Journal #1

My name is Clemintine Hesther.  I have 3o children and my favorite is Billy.  I went to fight in the war because I do not agree with slavery.  I went up the rankings fast so I am now already a general.  We are about to set out for the battle of gettysburg  so for now bi bi.

Skit:

(officer)- we need to move up on them grey backs.

Ohh I hate that bugger!

AWWW!!!! (gets shot) Im getting whipped out here! I need to skedaddle to the sawbones! Hello possum!

Hello! What happened to you? You don't look like you're as fit as a fiddle!

Well you know those grey backs are bluffs and sunday soldiers!

Well There towing there mark.

Well I got hit by a hornet from one of those bluffs pepperboxes.

Lets get started. Can I get an arkansas toothpick over here with some Joy juice.

Am I going to be wallpapered after this.

Well we need to get that ache out of your bread basket! But first let me take a quick step!

What?!

Where I am:

Dear mommamia,

I miss you very much!  How is Billy? I hope he is doing great!  We are stationed in Washington DC.  I have many fellow soldiers with me.  I like being there general but there is on problem I think some of the soldiers have a crush on me because of my high rank and stunning looks.  This makes me feel uncomfortable.  Lots of the soldiers have tried to do my chores for me to kiss up to me.  But a couple did them wrong and got me in trouble.  After, this I was forced to carry a log and guard the front of our base.  The camp is pretty big and has 3,000 soldiers stationed in it.  Other than that life is good!  

Love,

Clementine

Questions:

I think Jeremiah will be a recruit because he is so young.  They dont have the advantage of home turf so they might lose guys and run out of ammo.  It would be very loud and many people would die.  Yes because if they are in a non important area then they might have a lot of down time because not many union soldiers go that way.

Song:

The spongebob song,

I Can't hear you "AYE AYE General"

Who lives in a battlefield under the bullets

"Union Soldiers"

"Union Soldiers"

If a war is something you need to give people freedom

"Union Soldiers"

"Union Soldiers"

Battle Photo prompt:

This is my budy olifius he fights next to me.  This is his prime time war face.

In battle the person you fight next to might not be there to long.  So I charish the relationship Olifius and I have together.

Coming Home:

Dear momamia,

I am so excited to finally come home.  I want to see my little Billy again.   It has been so long.  I also cant wait to see you.  I am injured but that won`t postpone my trip home.  I was shot in my leg.  It wasn`t to bad so it didn`t need to be amputated.  The doctors said I was lucky it just missed my bone.  The doctors said another inch and it would have crushed my bone and would have needed to be amputated.  So if you could tell my children I am coming back that would be great.

Love,

Clemintine

Fun photoprompt

In camp we do many fun things most of them we made up. Such as lice racing. We take two pieces of lice and bet on which one will get to the other side of the plate first. We have a lot of gambling games and board games.  One of my favorite things to do is read.
