Abstract:

The diary covers his military service in western Virginia between August 1861 and January 1862 and in northern and central Virginia between August and October 1862. He writes brief entries about war news and rumors from elsewhere, marches, weather, camp life, books read, religious sentiment, and hospital in Lynchburg. Lists the killed and wounded from Battles of Kernstown and Cedar Run. Of interest is brief mention of hearing cannonading on July 21, 1861, while near Buffalo Gap, Va., (possibly from the First Battle of Bull Run). Hammond was apparently on sick leave during the Valley Campaign and the Seven Days' Battle and, after return to service in August 1862, did not participate in the Battles of Cedar Run, Second Bull Run, and Antietam during the summer of 1862, though he does mention hearing of severe fighting at the latter two battles.
