Minor Cash Book and Edward P. Harmon Civil War Diary, Cash book maintained by Confederate Captain Charles L. Minor from to Harmon 5th Maine Infantry during May and June, Research materials on the two soldiers including photocopies of maps, muster rolls, census records, and an image of Harmon and a complete photocopy of the piece are also included. The small volume of 68 pages, bearing on its spine the embossment "cash book," was retained for its intended use by Captain Minor, its original owner, to carefully record personal expenditures and savings. Minor's records commence with November 6, and end on May 4, In recording these financial transactions, Minor provides details regarding his daily whereabouts and activities.

Also recorded within the book are Minor's bank transactions for , a list of silver wedding gifts received by Fanny Cazenove Minor, and a list of stocks and bonds held by Minor.
The cash book was among materials seized by Federal troops in the act of destroying the rail line and depot at Hewletts Station, Virginia on May 25, , and came into the possession of Private Harmon, who used it as a diary. As the first diary entry predates the volume's capture by three weeks, we may surmise that the early entries were made retrospectively or that they were copied from another book. Harmon's first entry, for May 2, finds his regiment having just crossed the Hazel River and preparing to cross the Rapidan.
Soon, Harmon describes fearful, endless shelling by "cast iron hummingbirds" during the Battle of the Wilderness. Harmon briefly mentions African American troops, Confederate prisoners of war, and camp rumors. As the regiment marches toward Spotsylvania Court House, Harmon mentions a fire in which many wounded soldiers were killed. He describes heavy fighting and losses at Spotsylvania and at one point questions the actions of the Brigade commander. Many of the entries center on his brigade's movements and preparations for battles that often fail to materialize.
Harmon's diary entries end with June 3, Following the June 3 entry is a gap, indicating the removal of several pages, and a page of wartime accounts held by Harmon and I. The volume also contains two botanical samples, one of which appears to be a collection of four-leaved clovers, tipped into the first two pages. James Joseph Williamson.

This small, leather-bound volume is the page diary kept by schoolgirl Alice Williamson at Gallatin, Tennessee from February to September The main topic of the diary is the occupation of Gallatin and the surrounding region by Union forces under General Eleazer A.

The diary lacks details of daily life. The schoolroom and occasional visits are the only other major concerns of the diarist.

Cleveland writes that he and George enlisted to 'take up arms in defense of that liberty that our fathers fought to Establish sic. He was most often at the rear of the regiment, tending to and assisting in moving the sick and wounded when the camp moved.
