George Modil was a man who did not have a helluva lot to say. All of
his diary entries read like "marched 5 miles, camped." He did,
however, keep detailed records of the weather (14 days of
precipitation in January 1863!) and the clothes that he had been
issued. Interestingly, he received a new pair of shoes in January
and needed another pair in early March, I'm assuming they fell apart
because he couldn't keep them dry.
Another interesting thing about his record of the clothing he had
been issued is that in July, he was issued one shirt and one blouse.
Wha??? In civil war army terms, what's the difference between a
shirt and a blouse?
