Civil War 1863 Manuscript Journal Diary Battles Rebel Prisoners 12th Vt Virginia

THIS IS A FASCINATING and EXTREMELY SCARCE PIECE OF CIVIL WAR HISTORY!Being a handwritten Civil War diary kept by Pvt John Finn of the 12th VT Infantry Regiment, Co. C from January to June 17 of 1863 (three days per page). The front pastedown denotes ''February 1863, John Finn; Camp Wolf Run, Sholes(sic), Virginia occupation; Patomoc(sic)." This was the probable location for the bulk of the diary. It is full of fascinating and historical entries, which include mentions of camp life, duties, sicknesses, marching orders, setting tents, reclaiming old Rebel barracks for camping, guard and battalion drills, rebel encounters, pickets at Bull Run (March), taking 3 rebels prisoner, right with 14th Regiment, much about his run ins with Typhoid (he is sick and in the hospital for a while), hard battle at Canonsberg(?), he also noted on June 14th 'dear friends dont be alarmed, when I get home...dear friends our army is on the re-treat.' Many similar entries that are not listed and for you to discover! Locations vary throughout, please see the link below for detailed photos of all of the better entries. Hadnwriting faded at times, spelling is poor; Finn was undoubtedly a poor uneducated youth at this time. Leatherbound and very worn with loss and soiling, as shown. Also, pages lacking from late June through Dec (removed many years back, from owner perhaps). Handwritten; measures roughly 3.5" x 2.5".
