Armie Hill’s Camp Journal


Armie Hill kept a journal while he was in Camp 59. This journal contains some lines of poetry, a list of the men in Armie’s hut, two drawings, notes about his own personal interests, Italian lessons, and notes on technical English and sciences from the lectures prisoners gave to one another.

The following PDF file (4MB) contains scans of each page of the journal and ends with a section of explanatory notes:
