Abstract:

Midler's field diary, 29 July-16 August 1864, was kept during the siege of Atlanta and is a brief but descriptive account of military movements of Sherman's forces, army conditions, and battle casualties. Among Midler's duties were caring for the wounded in army hospitals, assisting surgeons, writing to the Illinois families of dead soldiers, holding prayer meetings on the field, and carting medical supplies from nearby Marietta, Georgia. He wrote of his efforts to spread the gospel among Sherman's men and his reactions to the carnage and to the hospitalized soldiers of the Union and Confederate armies.

The folder includes a typescript copy of the diary.
