Civil War Diary of Charles Lepley

103rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Company E

January 1, 1864 - September 2, 1864


    An incredible account of a soldier's life in the Union Army and his final months alive in the Confederate Prison in Andersonville. While reading this, keep in mind that Charles passed away nine days after his final entry.

    The following transcription, as originally written by Charles, has been provided to us by Penny Pollock and we are grateful for being able to share this with our readers. The maroon text reflects the color red of the writing in the original diary for the entries up to his date of capture at Plymouth, NC on April 20, 1864.
