Abstract:

Diary, photocopy, ca. 90 p., of Henry A. Birdsall with the 11th Michigan Cavalry Regiment chiefly in Virginia and western North Carolina. Birdsall wrote almost daily entries from 1 January 1865, when he was stationed near Lexington, Va., until 29 July 1865, when he was on his way home, having been discharged on 19 July. Entries average a few sentences in length and discuss Birdsall's work with muster rolls and payrolls, troop movements, and general military life. Entries beginning in March 1865 describe the 11th Michigan Cavalry's journey through western North Carolina and include detials of several skirmishes with remnants of Confederate troops. On 24 April 1865, Birdsall noted the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, which "...caused considerable excitement among the soldiers. They feel more like fighting than ever." Also included are a few pages listing expenditures and letters written and some pages of miscellaneous scribblings, including a "Love Letter" and a poem entitled "Woman."
