Abstract:

The diary of Henry F. Wilson begins in 1860 April and ends in 1865 May. The first few entries contain descriptions of clerking at the cotton house, attending social events, such as the theater, parties, church, political meetings, and include discussions of literature.

The gist of the diary focuses on Wilson's life after he enlisted in the Mobile Rifles. The majority of his service was spent in Virginia, serving under Gen. Robert Rode's Division, Gen. Richard Ewell's Corps, and General Robert E. Lee's Army. He describes travel over Virginia, visits to Monticello and the Natural Bridge, the battles of Seven Pines, Fredericksburg, Winchester, the Wilderness Campaign, the death of General Rodes, as well as travel and social life in Alabama after Appomattox.

The diary contains wide and varied descriptions of camp life and includes lists of soldiers and physical information, as well as lists of letters sent and received by Wilson. The notebook contains poetry and brief account notations.
