Diaries of George H. Starr


Diaries of George H. Starr
Diaries of George H. Starr, captain of Company D, 104th New York Infantry. 3-part manuscript, bound with a pink ribbon. The first is a rough sketch of Captain Starr's army life from date of enlistment, November 28, 1861, to May 23, 1862. Starr explains he wrote this from memory, because he lost the diary he was keeping during the events, “a loss very keenly felt." Part 2 covers his army life and experience from May 23, 1862 from date of start for Thoroughfare Gap to August 23, 1862. The third part is a sketch of army life from about July 23, 1863, date of his escape from military prison at Macon, Georgia, to the end of his term of service.
