Title: Civil War Diary of Asaph Dodge
Printing Year: 1862

Condition/Details: Bound in leather-backed, pebbled black cloth with bright gilt lettering to front cover, this antique volume contains an original United States Civil War officer’s diary, belonging to Asaph Dodge, an officer of Companies E and F, 16th Regiment, New York State Volunteer Infantry. This unit was organized in Albany, mustered in on May 15, 1861 and mustered out on May 22, 1863. In May, 1863, the three years' men of the regiment were assigned to the 121st N.Y. Vols.

This book appears to be a privately-commissioned volume that was created after Dodge completed his service, bound to house these lengthy passages from his diary. As the Dodge family was educated and aristocratic, the composition style in this diary is distinct from the typical foot soldier’s diary from the Civil War. The writing is clear, articulate, expressive and compelling, and offers the added distinction of being told from the less common perspective of an officer. A clipping from "Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper," dated July 26, 1879, depicting a reunion of the representatives of the Dodge family, is pasted to the front endpaper. One of the engravings displays the following caption: Hon. William E. Dodge Introducing the Oldest Representative of the Family to his Relatives in Mechanic Hall. There are in addition a photo of an elderly gentleman, presumably Asaph Dodge, and a letter written and signed by the author's daughter dated Nov. 30, 1940, also pasted to the front endpaper.

The following information regarding the regimental history is provided courtesy of Frederick Phisterer’s “New York in the War of the Rebellion,” as presented on the NY 16th Regiment Infantry webpage:

The companies were recruited principally:

"A" at Ogdensburg
"B" and "F" at Potsdam
"C" and "E" at Plattsburg
"D" at Gouverneur
"G" at De Peyster
"H" at Stockholm
"I" at Malone
"K" at West Chazy and Mooers

The regiment left the state June 27th, 1861; served at Washington, D.C., from June 29th, 1861; in the 2d Brigade, 5ht Division, Army N.E. Va., from July, 1861; in Heintzelman's Brigade, Division of the Potomac, from August 4th, 1861; in Slocum's Brigade, Franklin's Division, 1st Corps, A.P., from Mar. 13th, 1862; in the 2d Brigade, 1st Division, 6th Corps, A.P., from May, 1862; and, commanded by Colonel Joel J. Seaver, it was honorably discharged and mustered out at Albany, May 22, 1863.

During its service the regiment lost by death, killed in action, 1 officer, 83 enlisted men; of wounds received in action, 4 officers, 24 enlisted men; of disease and other causes, 1 officer, 83 enlisted men; total, 6 officers, 190 enlisted men; aggregate, 196; of whom 2 enlisted men died in the hands of the enemy; and it took part in the following engagements, etc:

Dodge himself enlisted April 27, 1861, was a sergeant at his induction and was discharged as a first lieutenant. The diary dates from between April 4, 1862 to May 26, 1863. Dodge was subsequently employed for many years in the War Department Office in Washington (The data provided here comes in large measure from the website of the “Dodge Family Association” (www.dodgefamily.org), whose pages provide not only genealogical information but old photographs and historical records of this great family of numerous and extensive branches).

This diary provides invaluable first-hand accounts of the great conflict that was the War between the States (1861-1865). Mention is made in this diary of conditions of camp life, a visit to camp by General George B. McClellan, general-in-chief of the Union Army, and a review by President Lincoln on April 8, 1863.

The diary provides a chronicle of daily life at the front during the Civil War, lists various skirmishes, and provides eyewitness accounts of the battles listed above, among which the following figure prominently: Fair Oaks (May 31-June 1, 1862), the culmination of an offensive up the Virginia Peninsula by McClellan, in which the Army of the Potomac reached the outskirts of Richmond; the Second Battle of Bull Run (August 28-30, 1862), the culmination of an offensive campaign waged by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia against Union Maj. Gen. John Pope's Army of Virginia, and a battle of much larger scale and numbers than the First Battle of Bull Run fought in 1861 on the same ground; and the Second Battle of Fredricksburg/Salem Church (May 3-4, 1863), part of the Chancellorsville Campaign. The Wikipedia account of this military encounter reads as follows: “After occupying Marye's Heights on May 3 following the Second Battle of Fredericksburg, Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick's VI Corps of about 25,000 men marched out on the Plank Road with the objective of reaching his superior Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker's force at Chancellorsville. He was delayed by Brig. Gen. Cadmus M. Wilcox's brigade of Maj. Gen. Jubal A. Early's force at Salem Church. During the afternoon and night, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee detached two of his divisions from the Chancellorsville lines and marched them to Salem Church. Several Union assaults were repulsed the next morning with heavy casualties, and the Confederates counterattacked, gaining some ground. After dark, Sedgwick withdrew across two pontoon bridges at Scott’s Dam under a harassing artillery fire. Hearing that Sedgwick had been repulsed, Hooker abandoned the entire campaign, recrossing on the night of May 5 into May 6 to the north bank of the Rappahannock River back towards the Federal camp at Falmouth." Dodge records his experiences of May 3rd:: “This has been the longest day that I ever experienced, got up at 1am, laid under fire in the road till about 10am, when our men took the heights back of the city. Then we were ordered to fall in and off we went, marched through the city of Fredricksburgh (sic) and out on the plank Road about four miles, then went in and had a big fight. Fell back, lap (?) heavy, weather very hot, Battle of Salem Church, got down to rest soon after dark.”

The names of officers and soldiers wounded and killed in these military encounters are often provided. The diary ends with Dodge’s discharge from military service, not long after receiving his sash and sword belt on March 13, and his return to private life in New York (Watertown being the last town listed in the diary). The last words recorded are simply “Good day soldiering.”

This handsome volume has bright gilt letters on front cover that read "Army Diary Asaph Dodge." It shows some external age/wear, with cracking to upper portion of spine. All pages are in place. The book has one detached and laid-in sheet where the single strand of cotton thread that binds the signatures has begun to let go due to age (there is no damage to the pages, the strand of thread is simply no longer holding). The mildly age-toned pages show neatly-written entries. The book measures approximately 8 1/2" x 13" and contains 58 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
