Henry Pippitt Diaries

Three journals kept by Union soldier Henry Pippitt intimately describe life in Company G of the 104th Ohio Volunteer Infantry during the American Civil War. The collection is unusual in that it covers the regiment's entire term of service, providing a history of the 104th Ohio as well as a glimpse into Henry Pippitt's life as a soldier. Pippitt's journals describe battles, troop movements, and camp conditions. The diaries are the property of the Mohican Historical Society's Cleo Redd Fisher Museum in Loudonville, Ohio, which graciously allowed the UT Libraries to digitize the journals and make them available.
