dc.description Civil War Diary of Henry Alexander Scandrett dated 1862. The front of the diary has the entry from Jan 7, 1862 written through Thursday Jan 9, "Monday 5th of May. Was in my first battle today. About 1 o'clock PM our regiment was marched into the field. We were thrown in advance and through some blunder was not reinforced. We have lost all our company officers and our field officers are all wounded. With fifteen others I was taken prisoner and am now in William and Mary College." The narratives of the diary are sparse but seem to describe a significant amount of detail regarding his personal experience as a soldier fighting on the Virginia peninsula. en_US
