Civil War Diaries, September 6, 1862

Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

“Sept. 6  Ate so many peaches that I was taken sick in the night with the colic which kept me down all day.

Went to the Hotel and got a cup of black tea which made me revive.  At three oclock a train of returned soldiers came in & the air resounded with their shouts.

I was favored rather unexpectedly with a “sick leave” & returned home, reaching there at 6 o’clock & found the folks in bed.”

Hiram Leonard Diary Entry:

6th Saturday  rather a showerey day, quite a shower in afternoon.  I did my choars was at the office some & helped Wm & C Noonan in afternoon get Wm hogs over to my house & in a pen.  I choared round some came home by Hoyts about 8, got home at 9 & went to bed about 10 nearly sick.  They called for Wm about 3 or 4 to go to Camp Douglas & he went.”
