Abstract:

Diary recording Ward's participation in Gen. William T. Sherman's march from Atlanta to Savannah, Ga., and the South Carolina cities of Columbia, Cheraw, and Beaufort; other places represented include Black River Bridge, Mississippi, and two furloughs to his home in Iowa, ca. 21 Sept. 1863 and Feb. 1864.

Ward describes Columbia and Cheraw, and pursuit of Confederate forces through North Carolina until the surrender of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's army, and mention of Sherman's review of Ward's corps (7 Jan. 1865); Sec. of War Edwin M. Stanton's appearance at their camp (11 Jan. 1865); the Regiment's departure from Beaufort (27 Jan. 1865), and skirmishes and destruction of railroad tracks en route to Columbia.

Other entries note drinking and anarchy of troops upon entering Columbia prior to the burning of the city (17 Feb. 1865); an accidental detonation of shells during transport that killed ca. 200 soldiers (19 Feb. 1865); Sherman's order (recorded 27 Feb. 1865) to execute two Confederate prisoners in retaliation for two of Hugh Judson Kilpatrick's men killed while foraging; defeat of Union foragers (18 Mar. 1865) in a skirmish with Hampton's Cavalry; description (23 Mar. 1865) of two mutilated Union soldiers; review by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant (25 Apr. 1865), and announcement of Gen. Johnston's surrender; also includes carte-de-visite photograph, 1865, tipped inside front cover, with inscription, "always ready to drink his beer."

Other topics include Ward's sickness and his suffering from augue and fever; roll of Co. H., 9th Regt. Iowa Vols. Infantry, dated 7 Nov. 1864; lyrics of Union Soldiers Song, following entry of 31 Dec. 1864; and record, 12 May 1865, "Distance from Place to Place traveled Since Eighteen Sixty one."
