Reminiscences of the War Between the States by a Boy in the Far South at Home and in the Ranks of the Confederate Militia by Joshua Hoyet Frier, 1859-1865

Date
1895 (circa)
Description
A photocopy of a transcribed journal of reminiscences written by Joshua Hoyet Frier from 1895 to 1903. Frier describes the period immediately before and during the American Civil War. The journal documents his service in the First Florida Reserves from 1864 to 1865. 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.
