Ordered by General Butler, the promotion of 76 educated, free blacks was an experiment during the early days of enlistment.

Recalls a fierce skirmish on the mainland at East Pascagoula, Mississippi, in which his black troops suffered most of their casualties from apparently intentional 'friendly' fire from the Union gunboat Jackson".

b) - 1875 to 1878

“Born in Oneida County, New York in 1830, George O. Hand caught gold fever and sailed for California in 1849. For the next 10 years, he found adventure but little gold. During the Civil War, he served with the California column for the union cause. After the war, he settled in Tucson, Arizona, where he worked as a butcher, saloon-keeper, and night watchman and custodian at the Pima County courthouse. This is Hand's unexpurgated, personal diary of the 4 years he spent as an old west salon keeper. It records frontier life in Tucson - "the fiestas, cockfights and bullfights; bar-room brawls, outlaw depredations and Indian raids; smallpox epidemics, rabies, and personal battles with pleurisy, 'piles' and 'jim-jams;' the loneliness, tedium and harshness of frontier living, and the raucous political battles of the times."

On another occasion she attended a dance at Godfrey's Ranche, getting home at 5:30 in the morning, just in time to prepare breakfast for the passengers of the stage. On some days she baked as many as 51 pies, on other days she writes that she made 3000 cookies!” Latham was the last station on the South Platte.

Along the way Barrington became separated from his companions, and endured 10 days of rain, snow, cold and hunger. He threw away most of his possessions and chewed on raw speargrass roots. Once he had found his mates, they travelled down the Barrier River to Lake Alabaster again. They roasted a rat that Barrington declared ‘the sweetest meat’ he had ever eaten. After another week of rain and snow, they arrived back at Wakatipu, undernourished and exhausted…”

“Major Edward Manigault, one of the commanding officers ordered by General P. G. T. Beauregard to document his unit's daily operations, began a diary in July 1863 that would become one of the most informative records to survive the Civil War. Covering thirteen months of combat in one of the Confederacy's rare siege artillery units, Manigault's journal offers a day-by-day, at times hour-by-hour, account of life on the front lines. Especially notable for its description of artillery training, Manigault's diary vividly depicts his unit's participation in such well-known engagements as the battle for Battery Wagner and the attempt to sieze the U.S. gunboat Marblehead.”

CHAMBLISS, William H. (b.1865) - E

Dates Unknown

William H. Chambliss (b. 1865), a Mississippian, came to California as a member of the crew of the U.S. Essex in 1886 and made San Francisco his home base for the next five years as he shipped out on a succession of merchant vessels. He then tried to make his way in the city in advertising. Chambliss' diary (1895) describes his years at sea and voyages to Japan, China, Australia, Hawaii, and other Pacific ports of call as well as his life as a San Francisco man-about-town. The book consists largely of gossip and scurrilous rumors about leaders of San Francisco's "parvenucracy" of the late 1880s and 1890s: the Crockers and De Youngs and less-well-known pretentious upstarts, cardsharps and gambling hustlers, and society publicists like E.M. Greenway. (This description is taken from the openlibrary website).

b) - “…. As recorded in the journals of Captain Josiah A. Mitchell, Master, Henry Ferguson, Passenger, [and] Samuel Ferguson, Passenger. Together with Observations on the Burning of the Vessel at Sea and the Subsequent Miraculous Preservation of Fifteen Persons during a 43-day, 4, 000-mile Voyage to Hawaii in the Ship"s Longboat, as Prepared by a Newspaper Reporter Writing under the Pen Name of Mark Twain.”

Longboat to Hawaii: An Account of the Voyage of the Clipper Ship Hornet of New York Bound for San Francisco in 1866  edited by Alexander Crosby Brown, Cambridge , Maryland, Cornell Maritime press, 1974.

Note: From  Honolulu Magazine  July 26th. 2016: “A newspaper journalist, covering Hawai‘i for The Sacramento Union, Twain smelled a good story. He copied passages of the sailors’ journals into his own, selling the story to Harper’s Monthly. But when the story published that December, it was credited to Mark Swain. For a young scribe aching to make a name in the East Coast literary world, that must have hurt. Still, many years later, long after Twain shook up that same world with his bold story of a young boy harboring a slave on the Mississippi River, Twain called his story of the Hornet’s survivors, ‘My debut as a literary person.’”

He roamed the deserts of Arizona and Sonora and boated down the wild Colorado River, camping and prospecting. In 1902 he traveled to Mexico City with a relative of Theodore Roosevelt who was involved in a bizarre attempt to colonize Mexico with Boers from the Transvaal. For a year he lived in a shack in Goldfield, Nevada, reporting for several newspapers on the amazing discoveries of gold there. In 1911 he went big-game hunting up the Stikine River in British Columbia with Lord Osborne Beauclerk and the explorer Warburton Pike. Investigating Mexican silver mines in 1918, Bond found himself in the midst of bloody fighting with Pancho Villa. On his return to the United States he visited New Mexico, interviewing and photographing the survivors of Billy the Kid's gang and the Lincoln County War. These adventures and more are related here by his son.”

Stopping along the way in Rio de Janeiro and Cape Town, Alfred was received with great ceremony at each port of call. These visits provided the ship's chaplain John Milner (1822–97) and the artist Oswald Brierly (1817–94) with ample material for this chronicle, published in 1869, which gives background details of each region alongside scenes from the tour, enhanced by illustrations based on Brierly's sketches. The authors drew on various recollections and writings, including a letter from Alfred to his brother describing an elephant hunt in South Africa. The tour was abruptly curtailed in Sydney when a Fenian sympathiser attempted to assassinate the prince, an act which boosted support for the British royal family.”

c) - June to November 186-

More of the same.

Brite and Fair  New York, Cosmopolitan Book Corp., 1920.

Note: The entries in this series of diaries are implausibly regular and lengthy, and the dating of the third diary seems incompatible with that of the other two if the starting year is really 1868. The source of this date appears to be Berger, who gives no supporting evidence, and it appears to have been accepted by Arksey without consulting the full version of the diary. Given the number of books by the author which expand upon the characters in the diaries and are clearly fiction it is improbable that there is any contemporaneous foundation for the series and the diaries are best regarded as entirely fictional.

d) - March to November 191-

Purported diary of a hobby farmer. Given the nature of the preceding diaries there must be some doubt about the provenance of this one, but, despite its often flippant tone, is well observed and may in fact be, at least in part, authentic.
