Where to find it
Photocopy of a typed transcription of the Civil War diaries of George M. Patton, from his enlistment in 1862 until 1865. Diary entries describe Patton's daily activities during his service in Kentucky and Tennessee, as well as during the Atlanta Campaign, Sherman's March to the Sea, and the march north to Alexandria, Va. Daily entries are very brief. Beginning in January 1864, entries are somewhat less frequent, but are also somewhat longer. The last entry is dated 17 May 1865. A few letters are interspersed with the diary entries. Also included are two letters, dated 1918 and 1922, from Patton to his grandson Paul, and a few accounts and other financial items, 1862-1865.
