183 Important Civil War Diary of 8th Ill. Cavalry Important Civil War Diary of 8th Ill. Cavalry This unpublished 36 page typed copy that descended in the family of Sgt. Silas D. Wesson, Co. K, 8th Illinois Cavalry, one of the most storied Cavalry units of the Civil War is an amazing document in many respects. The 8th Ill. Cavalry was the only Cavalry Regiment to serve with the Army of the Potomac from its beginning till the end of the war, nicknamed by Lincoln Farnsworth’s Abolitionists. It’s list of battles and engagements with the enemy is far to long to list here. The diary is quite unusual in that it is the most humorous Civil War diary I have had the pleasure of reading, and I have read a large number of them. While Silas was a man of few words, they were often very well chosen. Some of the more interesting parts of the diary follow: Oct. 29, 1864 Freeman has been taking some of Uncle Sam’s horses for his own use. The Quartermaster is after him. Marched down Pennsylvania Avenue by the White House. We halted and gave three cheers. Some one came to the door swung his long arm at us, made a bow. It was Old Abe. Oh dear! He is so homely.; Feb. 9, 1862 Had a funny time in church. An Episcopal minister named Stewart would not pray for the President. Capt. Farnsworth took John Kinley and Wm. Willard and marched the old rebel off to the guard house. The rebel newspaper office caught fire and burned down. The boys did not try to stop it.; Mar. 30 Said Good bye to Laurence Bacon, Jeff Gardner and Sumner Burnham, discharged for disability. Wish I had some disability too.; May 5 Battle of Williamsburg, my first battle. It is not pleasant work. The weather is hot. They are burning the woods to burn the dead. The men cannot bury any more on account of the stench.; May 10 Battle of West Point. Took an Irishman prisoner. Col. Farnsworth asked him what he was fighting for. He answered, For the men who pushed me into it.; July 24 A woman from the Christian Sanitary camp walked through our camp. She scared our horses almost to death.; Aug. 1 weather is hot. The flies give us no rest. The ground is full of lice. The hospitals are full of sick. There is not half of the men in the Co. fit for duty. If the rebs are as bad off as we, there will not be much fighting.; Aug. 31 Some one stole my best shirt last night. I have one left and will wear it all the time. Kitsmiller had his head cut off by a saber at Dispatch Station but he came back from Richmond with his head stuck on again. Mistakes will happen.; Sept 1 Landed at Alexandria and marched out to Bull Run. Our army was badly whipped, I think, from appearances. Everything is in confusion and the men look discouraged.; Sept 4 Crossed the Potomac at Chain Bridge. Lee has gone into Maryland.; Sept. 7 Had another fight today, beat them again...We are crowding them back to the river.; Sept. 27 We have a new chaplain now, Rev. Philo Judson. He can’t preach for sour apples…; Sept 23 Crossed the river on a scout. Captured a reb officer. We gave his name Fitzhugh Lee, Lieut. Col. 23rd Va. He is tall and slender and swears as good as a Yankee.; Oct. 3 Old Abe was reviewing officers. I wonder how he likes the looks of his Illinois troops. He made faces at us as he rode by. But maybe he was only smiling. Poor man. He looks tired and warn out and he is as homely as a mud fence.; Nov. 10 Left our wounded in the rear of Markhem Station. The rebs robbed them of everything but the negroes fed our men until we could get them to our hospital.; Nov. 27 Chaplain Judson preaches and prays to us and his son gets drunk and swears at us and one does as much good as the other.; Jan. 31 Have been standing picket one month, on guard every night. It is hard work but I am getting used to it.; April 6 Grand review of the Cavalry Mud knee deep but we marched the best we could. Lincoln and his wife were here. The President looks tired but he is as handsome as ever.; April 15 We are on the march...We crossed the river at Freemans Ford. The rebs surrounded us. We had a hard fight to get out...We got out of the trap at last.; April 25 Marched through Salem to Carter Run Valley...Went to John A. Washington’s house, got some very nice books from his library. (John A. Washington was the last private owner of Mt. Vernon which he sold in 1858 and moved to his Waveland Plantation, located near Marshall, Va. and this is likely where Silas looted those books. He was a Lt. Col. and aide-de-camp to R.E. Lee, killed at an engagement at Cheat Mt. In , Sept.1861); May 2 Eleventh Corps broke. The enemy was coming in force to cut us off from the ford. Pleasonton got his artillary in position, gave them grape and canister. The 8th Penn. And 6th N.Y. charged and were badly cut up. We stopped them but it was hard work.; May 17 Started on a Floucester Point...We scooped everything on the way. On our return, every negro followed us. Our column was about ten miles long. Col. Brockenburg let us have a fine span of horses, that is we took them.’ May 27 Went to camp near Brooks Station. Sent the negoes to Washington to see Marse Lincoln.; June 9 Marched all night last, met the enemy at daylight. Have been fighting all day I have got a bullet through my right thigh. My horse is killed. I am going to the rear.; July 5 Have a hard fight at Gettysburg. Our Reg’t opened the fight, firing the first shot. I wonder who fired the last. Farnsworth is dead, struck with four bullets as he was leading a charge. He was A bold and fearless rider, A leader tried and true; As e’er amid the storm of war the brand of battle drew. Where coward souls might falter, Or fools be rashly vain, He never rashly drew his steel, Or weakly drew his rein. Kilpatrick was jealous of him and ordered him to make an attack. He could not win.; Aug. 1 Again with the reg’t, but many of the boys have been killed or crippled for life.; Sept 19 I got Old Charley back. Old Charley was stolen by Deck, but he could not ride him, so Simon Saydan rode him...Deck got him back & kept him. He was shot from under Simon twice, once in the knee and once in the nose. He was left for dead when shot in the nose, but he followed Simon who went on on foot, he came up behind Uncle Simon and whinnied: I rode him a short time of 62. I shall keep him now as long as he lives.; Sept 25 Have got a lot of prisoners, poor devils, they look sorry. Our orders were to burn every barn in the Shenandoah valley, destroy all the grain, take all men prisoners, drive off all the stock and leave the women and children to starve, I suppose. We would not do it. It is the first time I saw the reg’t refuse to obey orders.; The diary continues in this vain for many more pages with descriptions of battles, saving Custer from a trap, death of CSA Cavalry head Stuart, fighting Moseby and much more. We will skip to near the end after Silas re-enlisted with the following: April 15 Last night boots & saddles sounded. We are marching west. It is said Lincoln is killed. I don’t believe it. April 16 It is true Lincoln is killed, we are marching east now, going into Maryland...The was a party at Brigade headquarters and Wilkes Booth was invited on the 15th. The night before he killed Lincoln and dug out. If we gets our hands on him he had better say his prayers quick. April 17 Still hunting for Booth. We found his boot at Dr. Mudd’s. We took the Dr. in. Boot is hid somewhere and he will be found. It is all heavy timber here. We marched all the swamps in Maryland hunting for Booth. April 19 We hear Lincoln’s funeral is today in Washington. April 25 In camp near Washington. Booth is taken. Now if we could get him he would be roasted over a slow fire. April 29 We hear Johnson has surrendered. The war is over sure and we will go home to die no more. The diary continues for several more pages until the Regiment was discharged in Chicago. Silas did buy Old Charley and take him home to Decatur, where he is now buried on the family farm. The 8th served as President Lincoln’s Honor guard, while his body was under the rotunda of the Capital in Washington. Silas D. Wesson was buried in DeKalb Co. Victor cemetery in 1909. We can assure any bidders on this lot that the above quotes are only a small fraction of the interesting parts of this diary, in fact I left out my favorite passage from the diary. I think most Civil War historians would agree with me when I state that a humorous Civil War dairy is a very rare thing indeed. There are copies of this diary with the U.S. Army archives and Illinois History & Lincoln Collections, Manuscript Collections, but neither of these are online or published. Fine. 200 400
