War Diary of Captain Alexander A. Arnold / John Doser,
During the Civil
War years Wisconsin mustered into the service of the Union various
organizations such as the Thirtieth Volunteer Infantry. Although it
did not take an active part in the war against the Confederacy, it
carried out its duties well. These duties included protecting civilians
from Indians, enforcing the draft, building forts, and guarding prisoners
of war. Of the ten companies in the Thirtieth, Company C was under
the command of Captain Alexander Arnold of Galesville, Wisconsin. During
much of his life Arnold kept a diary which included his years in military
service. This paper centers around his diary which has not been previously
transcribed. Because the Thirtieth was not engaged in combat, not much
is known of its day to day operations. Arnold’s
diary does reveal some of these operations particularly as they relate
to Company C.
