TWELVE MONTHS ON THE GALLANT YARD

THE CIVIL WAR MEMOIR OF 
HERBERT CARLETON
---------------------
This particular article I run across in the Library.....I did not write this article but after reading it I thought it may be of great interest to the many that has a desire to know what took place for a new 'sailor' aboard a ship 'USS Circassian' in the Civil War era.

This 'article' is from one of the few Civil War Naval diaries that still is in print.
Herbert Carleton dictated his story to a fellow member of G.A. R. Post Ten in Worcester, Massachusetts.  The memoirs were written in pencil on the back of wrapping paper.

If you'd care give this one a go....just click: HERE


Hope you enjoy the article.
