This book is certainly not elite history, but is rather a complicated set of writing included in the notebook of a Uniontown, Pennsylvania born and bred Civil War veteran who survived into the 20th century. It is more than a bit of a miracle that all three of the authors of these particular materials survived until the end of the war. At any rate, it provides a compelling story of the end of the Civil War. This book, at about 200 pages, is divided into two sections based on the materials from Mr. Chisholm's diary that was transcribed into this book. The first half of this book or so is made up of the diary of a noncommissioned officer from the same unit, Samuel Clear.

Chisholm had enlisted in the Union Army in February 1864, spending most of his enlisted time alongside a company of men from Uniontown, Penn. After the war, he collected his own letters from the front and combined them with the daily diary entries of his sergeant, Samuel Clear, along with several of Chisholm's brother's letters and various lists pertaining to his company.

by W. Samuel Clear, who was in the same Company as the Chisholm brothers were. His day to day entries during 1864-65 are the real deal. Pragmatic, prosaic and utterly without pretension, Sgt. Clear comes across as a decent and likable soldier. Modern-day soldiers will nod their heads sympathetically reading these flashes from history.

Of all the diaries of the CW this is my favorite. It reads easily and is unlike so many others I have tried to PLOW through - none of the flowery patriotic holier-than-thou redundant grandstanding that is part of so many diaries - especially from the officers. In fact I found it really doesn't read like a 19th C. book, to me. The makes-no-sense, unnecessary, cruel, stupid orders the soldiers had to endure - seem insane by today's standards. (paraphrasing) "Reveille at midnight ( why midnight?) - stand at attention in a cold rain waiting to be reviewed by the General (early April) till he shows up at 6:00 to conduct the review. ( why stand from 6 hours in a spring downpour? ) Marched without breakfast till the rain let up around 11:00 - in a dense fog."

The totally tragic and senseless combat that follows sounds more like the movie Platoon than a CV diary to me. The combat casualties are very personal - as any combat veteran knows - or tells; a few here - a few there - repeat. Every fallen, broken, smashed casualty is known - a friend; someone you remember doing fun and interesting things with. The casualties all add up as well as the surgeons toll and the camp fevers that at least had distinguishing names by then; that was the extent of treatment. This diary is so much the 'Real Thing' I keep it for reference and recommend it in order to get the feel, not the record, of the war. If you read only one CW diary, read one that is "for real."

Anyone interested in the daily goings-on of a Civil War soldier would love this book. Daniel Chisholm was a soldier from our area. His letters home, along with his brother's, are also included. It's very easy to read and moves quickly.

The dairies and letters in Daniel Chisholm's book bring the enlisted man's experience in the Civil War vividly alive. Our family had an ancestor, Robert Brownfield, who served with Daniel in Company K of the 116th Penslyvania Volunteer Infantry. We read the book after visiting Robert's grave at Arlinton. It brought the night march through the rain and dawn attack on the Bloody Angle on May 12th out of the history books and into a discussion with the participants.
