     Civil War Diary of Charles Nelson Hendrick

This is a diary of Charles Nelson Hendrick, written during the Battle of Chattanooga, across the river from Lookout Mountain. Charles was a brother of Talma C. Hendrick, who was the father of my grandmother Minnie W. Hendrick. Charles was born July 16, 1843 in Berkshire, VT. After the war he married his first cousin who he discussed and wrote poetry to in his diary. This diary was a little leather bound book about 1 ½ inches wide and 3 inches high. He filled the book from front to back and the turned the book upside down and wrote from back to the front. It was very hard to copy and the only way that I could do it was to lay a piece of paper along the line and only read what was written above the line. The diary is copied just as he wrote it, even to a few spelling errors. See Exhibits for pictures of the Diary Book.

I left home to enlist. Went to Cleveland, stopped a few minutes and took the cars for Columbus, reached there at

Tuesday, 22nd. Enlisted, was sworn in, received $27 and started for the South.

Wednesday 23rd
Reached Cincinnati, stopped til noon and took the boat for Louisville, Ky. (page 3)Thursday 24th
Reached Louisville this morning. Went to the Soldiers home, stayed half and hour, got breakfast, took the cars for Nashville, arrived at dark.

Friday 25th Left Nashville and in the night stopped at Stevenson, Ala.

Sunday 27th Left there and started for the front at Chattanooga. Arrived in camp (page 4) and reported to Capt. Southwick.

Chattanooga Oct 5th
About eleven this morning the rebels began to shell our position and they have kept it up til Now, about 4P.M.

Sunday Oct 11th
This morning some of the soldiers were amusing themselves by playing with a 32 lb. shell thrown here last Monday by the rebels. One of them rolled ( Page 5) it in the fire to scare some colored boys when it suddenly exploded, taking a leg off from two of them and burning another pretty badly, and the pieces flew off some 20 to 30 rods killing one soldier who was sitting in a chair and I heard it wounded another one, doing more damage than the rebels did in a whole days shelling.( Page6) It was said to be a Sergeant Major who put it in the fire. I was sitting about ten rods off, one piece came by about 2 rods from me. Ambulance has just come to take away one of the colored boys down to town.

Monday Oct 12th
I reckon there has been right smart of a fight on our right today.( Page7) I have heard considerable firing today. I saw Major General Rossean tonight.

Tuesday Oct. 13th
We hold an election today for Governor of Ohio. A very wet and nasty day. I hope no Ohio soldier will disgrace himself by voting for Valandigham.( Page 8) I have thrown in my vote for Honest John of Cuyahoga. Hurrah for John Brough. Still the rain pours down and nothing to eat.
O' that I were a little bird that upward I might soar and when I spied my way clear I'd steer my course for home.
Ah! the hard bread comes at last.( page 9) I have got filled up once more. I guess we are going to have a wet time tonight. Our Capt. went to hospital yesterday afternoon. We have a rumor here that our Regt. is going back as a reserve.

Wednesday Oct 14 Still it continues to rain like split.( page 10) It stopped this morning long enough for us to get our breakfast and then it began again. Bully!! for the rain. "O who would not be a soldier? A soldiers life is the life for me. I own I love it dearly but rain or shine by day or night, I'll due my duty cheerly.( page 11) We have gained one thing already by the Captains absence, before, we had to pile out at 3 o'clock in the morning, wet or dry, to roll call. Yesterday we had none at all and this morning, we did not have any till day light. John Brough got 80 votes from our Battery. Val. nary a one.
page 12) Oct. 14, 1863 To A Lady Original
Though a stand alone and blighted,
and my hopes are buried low; By thy

smile my soul is lighted, In this
darkest night of ever.
Though the world has all forsaken,
Thou art true as in the past; Thy
pure love remains unshaken, By
the storm and Tempest blast.
And when others have defamed me,
In their lies thou did'st not heed;
As a friend thoust ever claimed me,
Truest in my utmost need.
(page 13)                         4
And now by the world forsaken, and a
mark for envious hate, though heart
riven, yet soul unshaken, I am
equal to my fate.
No worse than the past has brought me,
Can the future have in store;
and the lesson well is taught me,
To place trust in hope no more.
Though by all the world forsaken,
I have still a friend in thee;
and tis sweet, the unshaken
Is the dearest one to me.

(page 14) To A Friend
O, let us cheer each other, love,
while here below we live,
and never barter friendship, love,
For all the world can give.

O, never let unkindness love,
Fall from those lips of thine
But let us ever cherish, love,
Friendship pure, devine!
(page 15)
By the mountains towering round us,
By the heaven that hands above,
I will never for a moment.
be untrue to thee, my love!
While the stars of heaven are shining,

While shall spread the heaving sea,
Wherever fate shall bid me wander,
I will constant be to thee.
Though an ocean should devide us,
and for weary years and long I
am parted from thy sunny smile,
and thy soul-thrilling song
(page 16)I will never, love, forget thee:
And this constant heart of mine
Will full oft, in fancys dreaming,
Wander backward to thy shrine.
for the chain that long hath bound me,
That sunny smile of thine,
Can never, never cease, love.
Round my intermost heart to twine;
Then, while younder mountains tower, love,
While yonder heavens hangs above, I will never for a moment,
Be untrue thee my love.

(page 17)Oct 15th
We had a very wet time last night. It rained till nine o'clock this morning. No roll call yet.

Oct 16th Out of rations again. Frank went after them yesterday, got tight and did not come back till this morning. It did not rain last night but it is cloudy yet. We hear that Captain Southwick has sent in his resignation. (page 18) All quite along the lines this morning. I hear the old 29th is in this Department. I hope it is so. I would like to see some of them once more. ( The 29th was his outfit during his first enlistment) Now for dinner, a piece of pork and a cup of coffee, is all I have got. a soldiers luck. Bully, dinner this.( page 19) Ah!, it almost shakes my patriotism. I think when I am well out of this service again I will not enter it again at least not as a private. Almost 7 o'clock, the hard bread got here. We have got hard bread, sugar and coffee for three days.

Saturday Oct 17th
We are promised with fair weather once more. I heard the rebels drums tonight, plain. I have heard firing occasionally this afternoon on our right. I saw Brig. Gen. Churchill tonight. He is a short man, not over 5 ½ feet.
In a soldiers life there is much of joy and also much of trouble. I’ve also heard of a soldiers glory but I think it all a bubble.

(page 21) Sunday Oct 18
Cloudy and wet this morning. Frank is under arrest, I reckon for getting drunk. Bully for him.

Monday Oct 19th
Got some more hard bread this morning. We had orders to get ready to march too. We have got ready but we don't see the(page 22) march yet. Lieut. Geary said we were going to cross the river. It is fair and pleasant again today. I went to the Catholic Church to meeting last night- heard a good sermon.

Tuesday Oct 20th
At dark last night we started and crossed the river and went(page 23) about a mile down the river and stopped for the night. This morning we have placed the Battery in position are fixing up our camp. We are now in the 1st brigade, 1st Div .Reserve Art. We have a very good place to camp, on a high ridge, the river in sight (page 24) on both sides.

Wednesday Oct 21st, 1863
It thundered considerably this morning and rained some. It is raining now a little and the sun shines bright too. Lieut. Turner has resigned and I hear his resignation and the Captains too has been accepted.

Thursday Oct 22
Lieut. Turner goes home today.(page 25) I have sent my revolver by him to Talma. We have got a pretty good house today. We are going to build a fine place. We have got our brick but no fireplace yet. Lieut. Turner has started, he had the company fall in and said a few words to us, bade us good bye.(page 26) Lieut. King then proposed three cheers which were given with hearty good will. And now he is gone. I hope that he will have a good time and a safe and speedy journey. Frank has been relieved of arrest. I am on guard for the first time tonight.( Page 27) I am on first relief.

Friday Oct 23     
It is rainy again today. Last night there was several guns fired over to the front. I have not had any crackers since last night and do not expect any till tomorrow morning.( page 28) I have to live on corn like any hog. Well there is no use of complaining, it doesn't help me any and I ought to be thankful for the privilege of starving for my country.
4 p.m. Bully for me. Joe Davis gave me four crackers so I had supper and one left for breakfast. Verily, "The Lord will provide,"
(Page 29) The boys say, we must be preserved and something has got to come tonight, if they have good luck we will have something to eat tomorrow, "God Grant It." Stoughton, Johnson, Gould, and Winchester, and myself occupy the shanty I am in. We have got a good fireplace now, lacking only the chimney.

(page 30) Saturday Oct 24
Have been very busy today chinking up and plastering our house. Captain Southwick started for home today.

Sunday Oct 25th
It has been cloudy today but no rain. We got a few crackers yesterday, but mine are played out again. We draw again tomorrow( page 31) after breakfast. If we could only get full rations we would have a good time here. This don't agree with me first rate. "It don't." Dinner, a piece of meat and a plate of soup. Supper, a cup of coffee, no crakers, What do you think of that? Eh? (Page 32) Pleasant morning; Johnston, Winchester, and myself, went down to the bridge last night and raised a half box of bread. 4p.m., Lt. Gary had us fall in and ordered the Sergeants to have their detachments packed and ready to move at sundown. The caissons to remain here under guard.( Page 33) At dark, we got our rations and the 8th Battery left. It was a beautiful evening, the full moon shone bright & clear. The stillness broken every now and then by the report of cannon or musketry. I was on the 2nd relief.

(Page 34) Tuesday Oct 27
The Battery went about a mile in a Left Oblique direction from camp, last night and stayed till this morning, when they done up their blankets and left them and moved farther to the front where they have been doing a little service. I went down(( Page 35) to help bring up their blankets and several of the rebs shells burst near where we were. The rebs were yelling like so many Devils. Wild Dow got hit on his ass by a piece of shell. The boys came in at dark and say they have not fired any. They have got a pontoon bridge across the river now & the men are (page 36) are clearing a road to Shell Mound, so I am told.

Wednesday Oct 28th
We had a little rain this morning but it is almost clear now and the sun is shining. Our men have been shelling Lookout today, most all day. The Rebels answer for themselves pretty well "I reckon." It begins to look (page 37) considerable like winter here, the trees are falling off the leaves fast. (that the way that he wrote it) I am in hopes we will soon have possession of the railhead from here to Stevenson and if we can drive the Rebs off from Lookout I think they will have the place. Today I have had more to eat than I wanted for I have had no (page 38) appetite to eat. I should like to get to go to Louisville to see Sherman (his brother).

Thursday Oct 29th
The boys are out drilling on the pieces. Last night Lieut. Gary reported to us that Hooker had arrived on the other side of the river with two Corps, so we have possession of the R.R. to Lookout. I don't know if we hold by there on not. Last night there was heavy fighting over there. I think in Lookout Valley. It began about 1 o'clock and I think it lasted an hour, perhaps longer. There was considerable cannonading and very heavy musketry. It is very pleasant weather yet I hope (page 40) it will so continue. There was some fighting again today over where it was last night. We hear today that Longstreet started to take our Divisions that had crossed the river but instead of reaching them and as he fondly hoped, making an easy prey of them, he met Old fightin (page 41) Joe Hooker, who I hear gave him particular fits. So that he left his dead & wounded and artillery on the field.

Friday Oct 30th
The day has begun by a drizzling rain. Jessie got another letter from Sherman last night, he is in Cincinnati and doing well. The letter (page 42) was mailed the 8th, he was expecting to get a furlough. I hope he did! Good! I have been up to see Liut. Gary, he showed me a letter from Sherman & father to Capt. Southwick. Sherman has been home, he got there in time to vote for John Brough. He is doing well at home. (page 43) Jesse is writing to Sherman today. I think I will not write any more until I get an answer to some I have written. We don't get any beef today Yet. I have been to see the Doctor, he is going to send up some medicine. The Lieut. has excused me from Duty for the present. It is rainy yet. (page 44)

Saturday Oct 31st
Cloudy this morning, but does not rain any. I have sold Talma's boots this morning to Alfred Gould for $9. Payday of course. There has been an auction sale today of the things which belonged to the boys that were killed at Chichamonga Sept. 20. Charley Sweet gave me some green tea. The first I have (page45) tasted since leaving home. It tasted good "I bet You." Col. Barnett comes over at 3 p.m. to muster out the Battery for pay. No muster for me yet. They have not received my reenlistment papers yet. Colonel Barnett sent for me and asked me some questions and said he would send to Columbus (page 46) for them. I like Col. Barnett's manners and I think he is a fine looking Officer. the boys are hulling a good lot of corn today. When the Col. was inspecting the quarters he saw corn, says he, Boys , where did you get your corn? Stoughton replied, we realized that Colonel. He laughed (page 47) and went on. There has been some firing to our front and right. I do not know what it has amounted to.

Sunday Nov. 1st
A bright and pretty day again. Our boys went down on the flat last night and captured a box of bread, "new at that." I have slept nearly all day.

(page 48)Monday Nov. 2nd
A little cloudy this morning. Johnson brought in another box of bread last night. Stoughton allows now that there is not room for me in his tent anymore because he must have a writing desk to learn to write. I guess he needs it. I don't care to sleep under him anymore, "I don't."

(page 49) Tuesday Nov. 3rd.
It is pleasant again today and very warm indeed. A fire in the tent makes it too warm for comfort. Master Rebel has been talking all day off of Lookout. I have been helping to put up another hut today.

(page 50) Wednesday Nov. 4th
A warm and sunny day. I have received a letter from Sherman with his photograph. He looks natural as thunder. He is getting along finely. Glad of that. Got a note this morning from the Postmaster at Nashville stating he had a letter in keeping (page 51) for me and if I would send 3 cents he would forward it to me. I have sent it "of course I did!, yes." I received a letter also from mother, she is well, Father has gone East. I have got writing to do now to answer my letters. I have got two letters for Sherman to remail to him. Cyrus has finaly got (page 52)home "Bully for him" I hope he has got a discharge. I have been at work on our house with the other boys and am pretty tired. We have got it nearly ready to move into. The Rebs are off Lookout again, tonight, at something. I have begun a letter to mother today.

(page 53) Thursday Nov. 5th
Rainy today and disagreeable. We have got moved into our new home. Fred Kinney and I sleep together, Mac and sweet Merrit & Sweatland. I have got a better place than I had before. I had a miserable time last night, had a hard pain in my side all night.

(page 54) Friday Nov. 6th
A pleasant day again. The sun is coming out, warm. Lieut. Grant of the 29th O V. I (Ohio Volunteers Infantry) was here last night, in camp. He says Capt. Stevens is with them. Yet I should like to see him. They are 5 or 6 miles from us and across the river. I am going to send a note to the Capt. when he goes back. (page 55)

Saturday Nov. 7th, 1863
A little foggy this morning but the sun has come out bright and warm. Uncle Broxton is talking off Lookout today, again. Infantry chopping trees all around us for corduroy roads. Makes a good deal of noise. Our mule team has gone to Stevenson today.(page 56) The trees are cut away in front of us now so we can look down on the flats and see the river quite a ways. Thede has been drilling me a little tonight on the piece alone. There is a good many wagons on the flats tonight. I am on the guard again tonight on third relief.

(page57) Sunday Nov. 8th, 1863
It was rather cold last night. It is fair and warm this morning. Sherman's overcoat came today with the extra clothing from Nashville. Jesse has taken it to wear and take care of for him. My side has troubled me bad today. I wish I was cured of it.

(page 58) Monday Nov 9th
It is a little warmer this morning. We had vegetable soup for breakfast, pretty good I reckon. The boat came up yesterday from Stevenson. Last night some of our boys went down and stole a lot of bacon. They are now on extra duty cleaning up the park. "Bully for them."(red ink, page 59) Our boys who went to Stevenson with horses have part of them got back, the rest and Lieut. King have gone to Nashville. It is very windy today and chilly at that.

Tuesday Nov. 10th
It was very cold indeed last night. I almost froze im my bed, It is a little warmer today. We have got (page 60) our house fixed up pretty comfortable now, but we need a door and that we have not got yet. We had a short drill tonight, I like it very well now but I can not do it very well yet. Lieut. Gary is our Captain now I expect. I hear he has got his commission as Capt. Glad to hear it.

(page 61) Wednesday Nov. 11th, 1863
It was pretty cold this morning and frosty as the sun comes up it grows warmer. Lieut. Gary has promised a pass this afternoon to go over the river to see the 29th and stay all night. Some of the silver stars are over here nearly (page 62) every day. Got my pass about three and started, got over there a little before dark. The Capt. is out on picket, there is only a few of the boys left that I knew. They was glad to see me. They tell me that fighting on the night of Oct. 29th was a Reb Division trying to take Knapps Battery.

(page 63) Thursday Nov. 12th
It was so cold last night I could not sleep so I turned out at 4 o'clock. George McNutt invited me to breakfast with him. They expected Cap. Stevens in at ten but I waited till nearly noon and he had not come yet, so I took dinner with L. . Phinney and (page 64) started for camp. Reached camp about two and found two letters for me, one from Lydia and one from Tal and Mother. They are well at home. They do not like my buying the revolver, well they can do the other thing. There was a mule run (page65) away today on the flats with a man on his back. He run against a team and keeled over on the man. It must have hurt him badly, he was picked up and carried off. We had drill tonight by Sections. I went down to the bridge after roll call. (page 66) The flats were most covered with wagons but they were all empty, but a forage train just coming in. No crackers to be had so I moved back to camp.

Friday Nov. 12th
It is warm today but very smokey. We had Section drill (page 67)
this morning about half an hour, then Capt. Gary drilled the Battery a few minutes and dismissed us. I have written a letter to cousin Lydia and it will be taken to the office this afternoon. About three o'clock the boys got back with rations and (page 68) the mail. I received a letter from Sherman, it is the one that I sent to Nashville for a while ago. He sent me some of his accounts to settle for him and 80 cts in sutler checks to pay the sutler. We had drill again tonight by Section E, Detachment E, then by battery by the Capt.

(page 69) Saturday Nov. 14
It rained some last night, It is drizzling down a little this morning. I had a pretty hard time last night. My side troubles me so much. It does not feel very well now. The Capt. has got my descriptive roll and there (page 70) is something wrong about it. He took me over to the 3rd Division Hd. Qtrs. but did not make out anything. Only I got tired out. When I got back the Battery was out on drill. Gary has got to sent to Columbus again before I get my pay.

(page 71) Sunday Nov. 15th
A splendid and beautiful morning, just like our Sept. at the North. Charley Johnson of Edgartons Battery and formely of Ashtabula is here, we have policed our quarters this morning and it looks very fine now. I eat my last crumb (page 72) again for breakfast, but it is our day for drawing rations. Fred has gone across the river with the mail. Merritt has just made a fire and keeled up in my bed. Sweet is reading , Len is writing and Mac is in the butry doing something. That is all (page 73) in our house. I am rather lonesome today. I don't know hardly what to do, Dinner time and nothing to eat, I parched an ear of corn and ate that about 2. I popped another. It is four now and the boys have gone after rations. The rest of that clothing came today that was sent to Nashville, but I have not found Shermans blanket, somebody has gobbled it I guess. There has six, thirty two pound guns gone by here today, towards the front. Bully for that. I hope they will start Old (page 75) Mississippi John from the front now. There has been some firing off from Lockout. They seem to be afraid we will forget them if they do not salute us every day. Braggs army is dwindling slowly away, deserters are leaving him every day. Well (page 76) I am glad of it. the war will end all the sooner, and we shall get out of this cursed army. God damm the officers: I say, who will take his men off so far that they have to starve six months before he can get rations to them. Let me get (page 77) away again and dog gone; if they will ever catch me again, if the ship goes to hell.

Monday Nov. 16th
Bright and pretty this morning. Our rations came last night at dark and have got filled up once more. We have got six (page 78) days rations of sugar, crackers and coffee. Fred has gone over the river again. He did not get any mail yesterday. Sergeant L. Palmer goes home today, I hear, to recruit. I heard a rumor yesterday that our Battery was going up to Nashville.(page 79) Got an answer to that letter I wrote to Cousin Lucinda when I first got here. Father is there visiting. they are well at her house. After dinner we have drawed a good allowance of Beef today, over 600 pounds for three days. Lt. has stated, (page 80) the prospects are now that if we lay here much longer, there will be no Rebel army here to confront us. Citizens who come over from their lines say they are starving and can not stand it much longer. It is cloudy this afternoon and it looks like rain. (page 81) We had Section drill tonight. Capt. Gary came into our Tuggy this evening and had quite a talk with us. He said that Governor Todd had written to him that he had sent him a Captains Commission but he had not seen it (page 82) yet.

Tuesday Nov. 17th
We heard cannonading off to the left of us this morning. Major Cotter has taken up his quarters with our Battery. I saw him this morning. He has a good natured look and does not put on as much style as a lieutenant. (page 83) Gary has got his commission today. At our noon roll call it was read to us and he made us a fine little speach. I say little because he did not make a lengthy one, I think he makes a splendid Captain, he has commanded (page 84) the Battery before and the boys all like him. They are down on Southwick the worst way. Cap's commish is dated October 19th, to serve three years unless sooner discharged. We have been out on Section drill tonight, foot drill at that. We hear tonight (page 86) that Major General Cheatham of the Rebel Army has resigned, I hope it is true! I do.

Wednesday Nov. 18th
It is very cold and foggy this morning. I have written a letter to Thomas Hendrick of Indiana this morning. Carley is writing a letter, Len is grinding coffee. (11 o'clock) Fred has just got back from town, he says he saw 8 men who had just deserted from the Rebs, fine looking fellows, he says too, I hear too that our men have got a Brigadier Gen. over in town, a prisoner, I mean. (page 87) They are playing out fast, I reckon. Let the Confederacy sink to the lowest bed in the infernal regions, and the sooner the better! There has been some heavy firing over beyond Lookout.. Perhaps our men are getting in behind them (two o'clock) (page 88) The company payrolls are now being signed, I reckon they will get their pay tomorrow. Flail is company crier to call the men when they are wanted. I have been christened Potomac, Charley is called Rat, and is known by that popular name. (page 89) The fog has cleared up and it is warm and comfortable. The old Steamboat, Dunbar lying over by Chattanooga is fast nearing completion. The Rebs partially destroyed her and our men are fitting her up again. When she is done, it will add one(page 90) splendid two wheeled steamer to our river line. I am on third relief guard for tonight and tomorrow. There is a good moon nights now, and I guess I will have a Pleasant evening to stand in. More firing off to the right tonight, Cap. gave me a postage stamp today, and said that I need not repay it. (page 91)

Thursday Nov. 19th
I was on guard last night from ten until twelve. It was bright and clear. A sentinel walking his beat at night has a splendid chance for reflection. Ten o'clock again, I must quit. (noon) Just before I was relieved, the pay master rode up to the Captains tent and unloaded his (page 92) safe. (two o'clock) The boys have received their pay for four months. Gould has paid me nine dollars for those boots. Promptly! Stoughton, Wetmore and some ten or twelve others are away guarding a train, so they have not got any yet, (six o'clock) Well I am off guard again.

(page 93)Friday Nov. 20th
A new detail was made last night and sent down to the train, to relieve those of our Co. who were there, that they might come and get their pay. A part of Shermans Corps passed her last night and this morning (page 94) bound up the river. There is a large pontoon train going alone with him. I hear they are going up the river eight miles and cross and flank the Rebs. There is any amount of money in sight today. The boys are paying up each other their debts. (page 95) There is no sutler here now to take our money away from us. There is three or four here but they have no goods. Our boys that went train guard have got their supplies into town and come back to camp. I expect we will have a big fight soon hereabouts (page 96) somewhere. The Rebs say themselves that they have lost all the advantage of the Chickamanga fight and have got to fight it over again. The boys are getting some more pay on back rations. Some three dollars apiece this is company funds that Cap. Southwick had saved. Cap. Gary says he has got fifty dollars. I reckon that I will come in for a share when we get that. It is trying to rain this afternoon, it sprinkles a little. "Boom", "Bang" go (page 98) the guns down on Mocasson Bend. Grant is keeping us here on short rations and is laying up commissary stores right close to us. There is one large depot full and another begun, down on the flats, between us and town. I think he might let us have our rations before (page 99) he goes to laying up stores for future. Frank has been after rations but cannot get across the river with the team so he took a detail of men and went again. My haversack is empty and we don't draw till after breakfast tomorrow. Well its nothing after (page 100) we get used to it. 4pm The men are out greasing the carriages and there is a prospect of our having to move. Well we have had roll call and also orders to be ready to move at dark. Cap. says that we will probably go 6 or 8 miles and be gone four or five days or a week and then he (page 101) allows we will come back to this camp again.

Saturday Nov. 21st
Well, I waked up dis morning and de rain was a pouring down and I was in mein but same as usual, so sez I, let ur drive I'm here first. Well, we got our rations last night (page 102) and the mules belonging to our Division train were brought up and hitched to our carriages and we were all ready for a start when about nine o'clock orders came to unhitch and unharness and we turned in for the night and it has rained all night, (page 103) and is raining now. Perhaps we will have to go tonight. The Ohio State Agent is going to take the boys money home for them. (3o'clock) It has not rained any this afternoon but it remains cloudy yet and slippery. There has been a train of wagons waiting (page 104) on the flats all day loaded with plank for pontoons. We think they are waiting for night again to move up the river. Cap. Gary has got papers to enlist men for the Veterans Service. Harry D. has enlisted for one. Jesse has received a letter from Sherman (page 105) by todays mail and a note in it for me. He is still in Camp Dennizen in Ward 46. He says he thinks he will come back in two or three months. He has got his pay for four months. Bully for him. HOSKINS has come down the river today. He says our men have (page 106) thrown a pontoon bridge across 3 or 4 miles above here so I hope that we will not have to go.

Sunday Nov. 22nd.
Bright and clear again. Inspection today at ten o'clock by Major Cotter, Velze inspection is over, GOTT for dam, ain't I glad of dat. (page 107) Now then, I must write sum letters. I have writ a long letter to Sherman, and now for dinner and the next thing will be something else. While we were eating a company of Rebel deserters passed here on their way to the rear. The boys who went to (page 108) the road to see them say there was 70 of them. (four o'clock) Those mules are here again and the drivers say they was ordered to move our Battery.. Just our luck. Our men have been shelling the Rebels on Missionary ridge today from (page 109) Fort Wood. We saw from here a wagon train on the side of the ridge getting just as fast as they know how with the shells bursting around them. We hate to leave our houses but if we have to go now is about as good a time as we can have.. "Boom go" the guns of Fort Wood every little while. The Infantry is pouring across the bridge and into Chattanooga. Something is up. Sartin sure. Colonel Barnett is here at Caps tent, I reckon. Grant is agivine to raise a stink somewhere and right quick too. (page 111) The hills here around Chattanooga are getting pretty near cleared up by the axe of the federal soldiers and Pioneers. Our cooks are hurrying to get our supper ready providing we have to go.. There is a Battery parked now down by the bridge.. That one that parked (page 112) there yesterday went away last night. We have a prospect of a pretty night anyhow, the moon is near her full and no clouds in sight now.. Well the assemble call has sounded now for orders. Lieut. Stevens says get ready to move at short notice with our blankets on the foot boards and (page 113) rations prepared.. So here goes.

Monday Nov. 23rd.
We left camp last night at dark and moved up the river 5 or six miles and halted and laid there an hour or two. Then we went back half a mile and parked. This morning the (page 114) drivers went off with their mules back to camp to feed, I guess. We are a little over half a mile from the river. We heard the cows plain over in Rebeldom. I hear the reason we did not go on last night was the lower bridge had broke and two Divisions could not cross and we have to wait for them.. (page 115) It is cloudy this morning and we have pitched the tarpaulins for shelter. I can hear cannon now in the direction of the front at Chattanooga. We expect to stop here till dark and then pull out again. We are going to take a position on the bank of the river while the pontoons are swung across.. General Shermans Corp. (page 116 at this point he turned the book upside down and started writing on the bottom side of the lines and going forward in the pages) is a little way back, ready to come up and cross as soon as the bridge is ready. I have been down near the river bank but I could not see any Rebs. I have been down where the Rioneer are half an hour playing chuckluck and came away even. (2 o'clock) They have been having a little frolic over to the front of us, to the left of (page 115) Chattanooga. They had a little musketry and the Artillery fire was very heavy. "Boom" goes another gun, then the shell. Now they are going in- only the small arms again. Bully give it to them. Every few minutes a cannon will ring out sending an invitation not to be disregarded. (page 114) I heard that it was Hookers 11th Corp. that crossed the bridge into Chattanooga last night. I went down tonight and played chuckluck for ten minutes and gained a dollar and quit. We made up our beds at dark and prepared for a sleep.

He married Caroline Dewey Hendrick at Montgomery Center, Franklin County, VT, USA, on 11 April 1866. Married by Rev J. W. Buzzel.1 Charles Nelson Hendrick appeared on the census of 1870 at Hagar Twp, Berrien County, MI, USA. The census lists the family as: Nelson Hendrick, 26, farm labor, born VT; wife Caroline, 24, born VT; son Charles, 2, born MI; son Arthur, 4/12, born MI.. He married (Sarah) Virginia Shobe at Davis, Tucker County, WV, USA, on 14 March 1899. North America Family Histories 1500 to 2000.1 Charles Nelson Hendrick died on 12 May 1911 at Davis, Tucker County, WV, at age 67.1,2

     He enlisted in Co. B, 29th Ohio Infantry, Aug 1861, and was discharged for disability on Dec 1862; and reenlisted in Sept 1863, in Battery C, 1st Ohio Light Artillery. Charles received his discharge at Cleveland, Ohio, June 14, 1865 at the close of the war. Rev. J. W. Buggel in Montgomery, Vt. Berrien Co married him to his first cousin, Caroline D. Hendrick, MI records give a marriage to Julia Hendrickson on July 19, 1868 at Lakevon, Lake Twp., Berrien Co., MI by Isaac Hathaway, JP and witnessed by H. W. Hawley and D. R. Sage. These marriage records say that he was born in NY and she in Mi. This marriage is not understood and requires more research. It may be another Nelson Hendrick. The same records gives the birth of Max Nelson on Apr 24, 187_ in Hagar, MI to Nelson and Carrie, both born in Vt.
     Charles' Civil War diary, written during 1863-64, is so interesting that the Compiler feels that it is worth including in this family history. Charles (the family knew him as Nelson) was a great writer, and not a bad poet. The love poems are written to his cousin Caroline, who he married after the war. The diary is very small, about 3 inches high and 2 inches wide. It is leather bound with a small leather clasp. Nelson ran out of writing space and turned the book upside down and wrote from the back to the front of the book. Copies of this diary are available from Edgar E. Hotchkin, Pasadena, CA if anyone wants one.1
