Summary: "On Diary is the second collection in English of the groundbreaking and profoundly influential work of one of the best-known and provocative theorists of autobiography and diary. Ranging from the diaryʼs historical origins to its pervasive presence on the Internet, from the spiritual journey of the sixteenth century to the diary of Anne Frank, and from the materials and methods of diary writing to the question of how diaries end, these essays display Philippe Lejeuneʼs expertise, eloquence, passion, and humor as a commentator on the functions, practices, and significance of keeping or reading a diary. Two substantial introductory essays by Jeremy Popkin and Julie Rak place Lejeuneʼs work within its critical and theoretical traditions and comment on his central importance within the fields of life writing, literary genetic studies, and cultural studies."--Publisher description.

This unique diary, written by one of the thirty thousand Hessian troops whose services were sold to George III to suppress the American Revolution, is the most complete and informative primary account of the Revolution from the common soldier's point of view. Johann Conrad Döhla describes not just military activities but also events leading up to the Revolution, American customs, the cities and regions that he visited, and incidents in other parts of the world that affected the war. He also evaluates the important military commanders, giving readers an insight into how the enlisted men felt about their leaders and opponents. Private Döhla crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1777 as a private in the Ansbach-Bayreuth contingent of Hessian mercenaries. His American sojourn began in June 1777 in New York. Then, after several months on Staten Island and Manhatten, the Ansbach-Bayreuth regiments traveled to the thriving seaport of Newport, Rhode Island, where they spent more than a year before the British forces evacuated the area. The Ansbach-Bayreuth regiments returned briefly to the New York New Jersey area before they were sent to reinforce the English command in Virginia. Eventually Döhla participated in the battle of Yorktown—of which he provides a vivid description—before enduring two years as a prisoner of war after Cornwallis's surrender. Bruce E. Burgoyne has provided an accurate translation, helpful notes for scholars and general readers, and an introduction on the Ansbach-Bayreuth regiments and the history of Johann Conrad Döhla and his diary. This first edition of the diary in English will delight all who are interested in the American Revolution and the thirteen original colonies.

Haditha Diary by J. D. Cowart

Haditha Diary is a novel of the Iraq War set in an infamous town. Heroic, yet human, Americans fought a controversial war to uproot totalitarianism, blunt Islamofacism, and give the gift of hope. The under-recognized Christian faith of American heroes underpins the courage of fighting men in Haditha Diary. Beginning in 2002, Haditha Diary presents the story of the war through 2008. The setting is real, the story reflects actual events, and the names of heroes have been changed to protect people still fighting terrorism. Espionage, frontal assaults, and dirty-tricks culminate in a suspenseful ending when a "U.N. Mandate" floods a recently secured town with Al Queda terrorists who face off against the Marines. Treachery and patriotism abound in this thriller where battles and characters are barely fictional and always closer to the truth than the evening news. J.D. Cowart accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior in 1977. Called to serve and protect, he enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1991 and completed the USMC enlisted School of Infantry. After Meritorious Promotion to Corporal, he was commissioned an Officer of Marines. Cowart served as an Artillery Officer until 1999. He joined the Texarkana Police Department where he became a detective after three years. He was activated from the Marine Reserves in 2003 and made a Company Commander. He later completed the Marines' three-month Infantry Officers Course. The author began a second company command tour in 2005 and started preparing his Marines for the meat grinder that was the Iraq War. He earned a Bronze Star while serving as a USMC Infantry Company Commander in the notorious Haditha AO. "I thank God for the privilege of serving," he says. The author currently attends Trinity Baptist Church in Texarkana, Arkansas with his wife, Amanda and their two children, Fayeth and John Asher.

Sam Richards S Civil War Diary by Samuel P. Richards

This previously unpublished diary is the best-surviving firsthand account of life in Civil War-era Atlanta. Bookseller Samuel Pearce Richards (1824-1910) kept a diary for sixty-seven years. This volume excerpts the diary from October 1860, just before the presidential election of Abraham Lincoln, through August 1865, when the Richards family returned to Atlanta after being forced out by Sherman's troops and spending a period of exile in New York City. The Richardses were among the last Confederate loyalists to leave Atlanta. Sam's recollections of the Union bombardment, the evacuation of the city, the looting of his store, and the influx of Yankee forces are riveting. Sam was a Unionist until 1860, when his sentiments shifted in favor of the Confederacy. However, as he wrote in early 1862, he had "no ambition to acquire military renown and glory." Likewise, Sam chafed at financial setbacks caused by the war and at Confederate policies that seemed to limit his freedom. Such conflicted attitudes come through even as Sam writes about civic celebrations, benefit concerts, and the chaotic optimism of life in a strategically critical rebel stronghold. He also reflects with soberness on hospitals filled with wounded soldiers, the threat of epidemics, inflation, and food shortages. A man of deep faith who liked to attend churches all over town, Sam often commments on Atlanta's religious life and grounds his defense of slavery and secession in the Bible. Sam owned and rented slaves, and his diary is a window into race relations at a time when the end of slavery was no longer unthinkable. Perhaps most important, the diary conveys the tenor of Sam's family life. Both Sam and his wife, Sallie, came from families divided politically and geographically by war. They feared for their children's health and mourned for relatives wounded and killed in battle. The figures in Sam Richards's Civil War Diary emerge as real people; the intimate experience of the Civil War home front is conveyed with great power.

It was 1831 when Father Frederic Baraga arrived in this country from his native Slovenia. He had come to bring Christianity to the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of the Old Northwest. Twenty years later, when Baraga first heard that he might be named Bishop of Upper Michigan, he began to keep a "daybook" or diary. Intended as a private document for his own use and reference, the diary contains a log of Baraga's missionary journeys, his observations about daily weather conditions, ship movement on the lakes, and a running account of the various works he accomplished. Between the lines of the usually concise entries, however, there are clues to Baraga's zeal, dedication, and generosity. An introductory biography of Baraga, lengthy passages from his letters, vignettes about persons in the text and a comprehensive bibliography yield an in-depth portrait of mid-nineteenth century life, especially in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
