Book Title: A Civil War Diary: Written By Dr. James A. Black, First Assistant Surgeon, 49th Illinois Infantry
A Civil War Diary: Written By Dr. James A. Black, First Assistant Surgeon, 49th Illinois Infantry About the Book Assistant Surgeon James A. Black takes the reader on a seldom traveled journey--a fourteen hundred sixty-one day excursion--as he participates in the American Civil War. During his sojourn the Union soldier openly shares his observations, his joys, his concerns, and his frustrations, as he provides the reader with tremendous insight into the daily lives of soldiers in their camps and on their campaigns some one hundred fifty years ago. In addition, James Black, a good soldier, was a strong believer in the Union cause, a religious man, and a moralist. In many ways his thoughts reflect the times and yet many thoughts do not necessarily follow conventional Civil War wisdom. The diary is completely unabridged and void of interpretation or comment by scholars. Simply, the diary is James’ personal story as he lived it.

Now, the diary kept by Salem, Illinois native Dr. James A. Black has been donated by Benita K. Moore and David G. Moore to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield.
The handwritten diary transcribed during the Civil War by Black from his field notes has entries for every day from January 1, 1862 through December 31, 1865. It includes Black's observations of daily life as a Union soldier, and his unvarnished opinions about generals, army life, and the horrors of war. James A. Black was born in 1835 in Salem, Illinois. Although he had prior medical experience, Black wanted to be a soldier for the Union cause rather than a doctor, so entered the Union Army on January 1, 1862 as an infantry private. He was mustered into the 49th Illinois Infantry at Camp Butler near Springfield along with other men in the unit who hailed mainly from southwest and south central Illinois. His unit fought in the battles at Fort Donelson and Shiloh. A month after Shiloh, Black was sent to a field hospital after becoming ill. There, observing the hospital conditions, Black volunteered to use his prior medical experience to help doctors care for other sick and injured patients, and so impressed the medical staff that they encouraged him to take the required military test to become a doctor. Black realized his medical skills could be more useful to the Union cause than his service as an infantryman, so he passed the test on December 25, 1862 and was made Assistant Surgeon for the 49th Illinois. The Assistant Surgeon was the person who provided what is now known as triage care on the battlefield for the men of the unit. Black continued to see action with his unit in western Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri, fighting under Generals Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman, among others. Following the war, Black was assigned to a medical post in Kentucky, and soon thereafter set up a private medical practice in Fillmore (Montgomery County) Illinois. Dr. Black moved his practice to Bond County, where he served residents as a country doctor until his death in 1902. The printed version of the diary, A Civil War Diary - January 1, 1862 - December 31, 1865: Written by Dr. James A. Black, First Assistant Surgeon, 49th Illinois Infantry, transcribed and edited by Benita K. Moore, may be purchased from the Museum Gift Shop at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum.
