Journal Entry : Alvin Cobb 1865

Dear Journal : The year is 1865, and I haven't seen my familee for 4 years. The war has finaly come to an end and countless of my friends and fellow soldiers are ded. I am full of mixed emotions, the war is over and I am happy the countree will stay whole and the Union won. But alsso the man who fighted for our freedom, president Abraham Lincoln was shot at Ford's Theater by John Wilkes Booth and I am afraid for us negroes, if we will be able to become actual citisens. But we will see in the future, for now I am thankful to my sister and priest Alfred for keeping me safe during the war. And for my parents who I fot for In this war, so that our countree could be hole again and maybe give us black people a chance in the reconstructin of America.

Dear Mary Blackburn,
The past couple have been brutal because I've been a picket the last couple bites and training multiple recruits. We lost of soldiers in our last battle the battle of Gettysburg and is known as the bloodiest war ever. I got the chance to march in Sherman march and destroy all of the confederacy supply and get a ton of food and finally full for the first time in a while. The battle of Gettysburg was the first battle I got to fight in. I'm sorry to say but our country needs me and I signed a contract till the end of war.

Working for everyone,
just to get rejected.
feeling like im nothin,
i dont get respected.
My color, my story, has everyon disgusted.
I need your help so I can abolist all of this.
I need to learn  drills
i dont wann be taking pills,
Working to get killed.
discriminating me like you know me.
I want to be equal,
i need a pay to take care of my family,
sorry to inform you but you owe.
making me do the dirty work,
 haven't you heard heard I am no slave no more.
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…
