Summary:
"This diary, most unusual during the Civil War, contains little about military life. Early in the war Van Buskirk abandoned his regiment. He wrote of the suffering civilians endured at the hands of armies, and found time to chronicle his fascination with handsome young lads he encountered--providing modern readers a glimpse of class differences and sexual mores"--Provided by publisher.
