Through the years soldiers have kept diaries for a variety of reasons. Writing in a diary often offered an outlet, a place which they could unload their fears and frustrations. Today, these diaries stand as significant primary documents that offer insight into the day-to-day activities of a soldier, as well as their personal thoughts and feelings. This program will highlight several diaries in our collection and the stories behind the individuals that used them to document their service.
