Few soldiers record their everyday activities during war and even fewer do so for a sustained period of time. Valentine C. Randolph did both while serving with the 39th Illinois Regiment during the Civil War. Articulate and candid, Randolph's diary tells of the excitement of battle, the monotony of daily life, and the racial intolerance displayed by his fellow Union soldiers.
