Jefferson Moses’ Diaries


"The diary was presented to Jefferson Moses by his father when he was home on furlough in September,   1863. His initial entries were irregular but starting on October 16, he seldom   missed a day until his discharge in June, 1865. There were actually two diaries   as he filled the first one in March, 1864. His father sent him the second diary.

Each diary   is about 3"x5" in size. He completed it in pencil. There were pockets   in the diary where he kept loose items including poems and practical instructions   for treating illness and battle wounds…"
