Abstract:

The collection comprises two volumes. One is a 127-page diary maintained by Carlos Baker at the end of the Civil War, dated 15 November 1864 to 10 July 1865. Baker provides very detailed descriptions of the final days of the conflict, even naming the farms where his company camps or fights. Of particular interest are the descriptions of his company's participation in General Sherman's March to the Sea, their marches through the Carolinas, and their fighting at Savannah, Ga., Averysboro, N.C., and Bentonville, N.C. The other volume in the collection is a 60-page commonplace book (1863-1871) maintained by Carlos Baker's wife, Eliza. In it are diary entries containing poignant descriptions of her anxiety about her husband's safety and many moving descriptions of her uncertainty about the future; poems and letters she composed; and notes about items she purchased, bartered with, or sold over the period. In addition, the collection includes a 20-page (partial) typescript copy and a 131-page photostat negative copy of Carlos Baker's diary. (00-450).
