|Arrangement:||The items in this collection are arranged by type of material. The original comes before the typescript.|
Scope and Contents of the MaterialsThis collection consists of a photocopy of Confederate soldier A. C. Lenert's memorandum book and a typed transcript of the page narrative. Covering the years 1861-1863, the 20-page handwitten book includes Lenert's description of Waul's Texas Legion in the battle of Vicksburg, May-June, 1863. This is a daily log of the shelling, artillery attacks, and the intensity of fighting, as well as a record of cuts in rations for soldiers as the siege continues. The last few pages of the book record financial records in ledger form, which are not included in the transcript.
