This diary is a photocopy of the original diary kept by Andrew Jackson Lawrence. He entitled it "Diary of events, haps and mishaps, since I left my father's house near Lookout Mountain, Chattooga County, Georgia. Lawrence recounts his "escape from the Southern Confederacy to the federal lines once more to seek protection under the United States government." A copy of a letter to a Miss Le of Rome, Georgia, dated April 19, 1868 is included in the diary. The first page of the diary is marked with a rubber stamp that reads "Mountain View, Georgia."
At the time of donation in 1974, the original diary was in the possession of Mrs. Nellie Lawrence Emerson of Piedmont, Alabama.
