Deer  Diery,
Recently was the Sherman’s March to the see. We had alot of challenges such as some men did not show any dedicashon. And our men were spred thin. There iz also some other bad news, there were 65,000 casualties in 7 weeks. Alot of our men died. I feel as though the march is necessary because it’s the only way for the south to be under the North’s control and taking the city of Atlanta which is one of the few manufactoring citys in the South, which is crucial to the north. Stuff are going great according to mr. lincons plans. Us blacks are getting treated differently and respected more thanks to lincoln, or as us black soldiers call him, white man hero lincon. I’m super glad he did what was right for my kind. Last week, one of my soldier friends went home to visit his sick mother, and i asked him a huge favor which was to visit my wife to see what she was up to. I know that wasn’t right and all but he accepted. He’ll be home soon and i’ll know what my wife is up to. I miss her truly and dearly and i hope she is doing fine and soon enough i will know.

Emancipation Proclamation
without any good intention
Im doing even worse,
i dont get a chance,
to ride a horse.
I am capable of so much more,
You know it, I know It.
I'm For your jealousy,
But we both have to work in infantry.
not telling me what the strategy.
destroying your own army
because of your pride.
Dont worry i dont need to learn from you,
i can get my own ride,
causing a better blockade on
me than on the actual war,
 dont worry I wont say a word.
I need food,
i know i am no white but i am no fool,
i see what you ar…
