Although just fourteen years of age upon enlisting with the 5th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, Edwin Hale Lincoln experienced the Civil War as did many of his elder contemporaries. His dairy entries tell of the thrill of receiving mail, the horrors of combat, and the monotony of daily life. Lincoln later became a celebrated photographer as well as National Vice Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic before dying at the age of 91.
