He discusses the prewar debate over secession; the early enthusiasm of some volunteers and the reluctance of others; the shortages of food, salt and other materials as the war progressed; a slave hunt; Frier's acquaintance with Lewis Thornton Powell (Lewis Payne) of Hamilton County, who later gained notoriety as one of the John Wilkes Booth conspirators; his participation in an expedition to capture deserters; his work taking up rails; a duel fought between two officers; and his relationship with the other men in his unit. Frier's narrative includes a vivid description of the Battle of Natural Bridge in March 1865, in which his unit participated. He also describes the execution of two Confederate deserters captured in Union uniforms. His narrative closes shortly before the Confederate surrender in May 1865. The journal was transcribed by the donor, J.W. Hart, and there is an introduction by J. Hoyet Frier III.
