Diary Entry: Wanted to Go Home, but Bleak Prospect

Julia Johnson Fisher - staying in Camden County during the Civil War, but hoping to get home - wrote in her diary that the prospect for getting away was not good.

“Have been suffering the past week from a strain in my side. No letter yet from the North and no passport. The prospect is that we must stay another year. Mrs. Chappelle must be about starting.”
