  • "Greene kept this diary during a tour with his father, Brig. Gen. George Sears Greene of the Army of the Potomac."
  • "Greene begins his diary with the march from Aquia Landing, Virginia, to Frederick, Maryland, June 13-29, and continues with the march from Sandy Hook to Ellis Ford, July 19-31. He writes chiefly of the length, time, and weather conditions of daily marches and the river crossings. The diary does not cover the time period of the Battle of Gettysburg. There are very brief mentions of sutlers jamming Fairfax Court House, Virginia, efforts to tease "a little nigger," troops not cheering General Joseph Hooker when he passed by, seeing the view from the mountain near Snickersvile, Virginia, with General Geary, destruction of the Manassas Gap Rail Road, men sleeping in mud in middle of road, civilian pleas for guards, fear of guerillas, and mentions of Generals Slocum, Sedgwick, Ruger and Williams."
