  • As some apology seems to be necessary for the effort herewith made, to add one volume to the already overcrowded shelf containing the nation s literature of the great Civil War, it may be well to say a few words in explanation of the following pages I thought that these sketches of my memoranda of army life, as seen by a boy, would prove enjoyable and profitable to As some apology seems to be necessary for the effort herewith made, to add one volume to the already overcrowded shelf containing the nation s literature of the great Civil War, it may be well to say a few words in explanation of the following pages I thought that these sketches of my memoranda of army life, as seen by a boy, would prove enjoyable and profitable to my comrades of the Second Minnesota and their children and I believed that they might at the same time serve to revive in the minds of the veterans themselves long forgotten, or but imperfectly remembered, scenes and experiences in camp and field It was not my original intention to write a connected story, but rather to give to my old comrades the contents of the diary I kept through our term of service, as I have been urgently pressed by so many old comrades to put it into print And as no full and complete history of the Second Minnesota Regiment has ever been written, it is hoped that these recollections of one of its humblest raembers may serve the purpose of recalling to the minds of surviving comrades the stirring scenes through which they passed, as well as keeping alive in coming time the name and memory of the organization which deserved so well of its country during the ever memorable days of now than twenty seven years ago With these few words of apology and explanation, I herewith place the Drummer Boy s Diary in the hands of my surviving comrades.
