description This is the second of two pocket diaries kept by Daniel Dougherty. They recount conditions on the battlefield and in the camps during his service. Entries list the names and ranks of men in the company, including men on furlough, sick and wounded men (usually describing the type of wound), accounts, and dispensation of food, shoes, and clothing to soldiers. Dougherty writes about weather conditions, notes time of day and place of encampment, and details any troop movements for the day.<br /> <br /> Daniel Dougherty served as a captain with Company H, 63rd Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers. He lived, at least for a time, in Allegheny County, and was married with several children, though little else is known about him.&nbsp; His diaries describe Civil War campaigns in Maryland, northern Virginia, and Gettysburg.<br /> <br /> This online record contains images of all handwritten entries. Entries cease on May 23rd through December 31st and many of these blank pages have been ommitted from this online record. The exception being pages from October 2nd to October 21st, which were ripped out and therefore imaged. Notes begin again on the memorandum page.
