Following the American Civil War Sesquicentennial with day by day writings of the time, currently 1863.

Late Publishing New Diary of One of Terry’s Texas Rangers.

January 14, 2013


Hi all,

imageI got a bit behind on some of the diary posts – I’m just about caught up now.  I am done publishing material from 1862 (unless I come across some new and interesting diary or journal).

One of the diaries I was behind on was a new one, the Diary of Ephraim Shelby Dodd, Co. D of Terry’s Texas Rangers.

Dodd was taken prisoner and the diary was found in his pocket.  He was condemned and hung as a spy.

I’ve saved all of the Dodd diary entries prior to January 14, 1863 as a pdf for those who may be interested in reading them without backtracking through the blog. Just click on the image above.
