| This is the Civil War diary of Albert Underwood of Annapolis, Park
County, Indiana. He was a member of the 9th Indiana Light
It covers the period of the war from January 1, 1864 thru January
11, 1865. It is a very different account than the one we read in the
history books. It tells what the war was like to a young man from Indiana
as he moved around the country with his unit. It is so personal, at times
you might imagine Albert Underwood is sitting across the table from you
telling you his story.
