I was not able to go see my wif. Apparently i was not redy to leve becuase my work was apparently much needed. I tryed to run away to see my wife but some one saw me and so i was forcd to sit in the dirt and bring my nees up to my chest wile my hands were brot around to the front were they were tied to my shins. Then they took a stick and shoved it over my arms but under my knees and then they gaged me, and left me their for owrs. The guy said if i ever try any thing like that again, i wood be punished really badle. I guess i will never see my wif agan.i think it was relly worth it becuse i was able to see have hope about seing my wife one last time in my hed and imagine us being together. I herd this weekend was the batle of antietam. I am not really sure what happened altho we just claimed victory, well we did not, the whites did. But theres also rumers going around saying no one really no one won. I also herd lincoln is working on some sort of project because of the victory at antietam. No ones really sure whats really hapening or what going to happen but we are all excited to heer from our grate mr lincon. Hopefully it will have som thing to do with the way us negroes are treated, i know mr lincon especially cares about my kind. I cannot wait to see what he has planned!
