Note: This transcribed version contains only volume 8 of the William Heyser Diary, covering the dates from September 1862 to July 1863. Those interested in entries from the 1850s should consult the Papers Read Before the Kittochtinny Historical Society (1971-1978). Obvious typographical errors have been corrected. Parenthetical notes by William S. Bowers have been changed to footnotes. There is some misnumbering of the dates. It is unclear if this originates in the handwritten diary or in the Kittochtinny transcribed version. These dates have been corrected where they can be corroborated with other information. For example, "MARCH 21 Sabbath," a Friday, has been changed to "MARCH 23 Sabbath," a Sunday. Some entries with duplicate dates remain.
