SALEM NATIVE'S CIVIL WAR DIARY DONATED TO LINCOLN MUSEUM

 

The Civil War diary of Salem, Illinois native Dr. James A. Black has been donated to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield.  James Black enlisted in the 49th Illinois Infantry at Camp Butler on January 1, 1862, as a private.  His prior medical experiences caused him to volunteer to help treat wounded soldiers and secured him a position as Assistant Surgeon for the regiment.  His transcribed diary depicts his service from January 1, 1862 to December 31, 1865.  After the war, Dr. Black established a practice in Fillmore, in Montgomery County and later moved his practice to Bond County serving residents as a country doctor until his death in 1902.  The Black diary joins 122 Civil War diaries and 400 collections at the museum.
