In honor of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War, we are featuring the the Civil War Diary of Miss E. Deanie Blanchard who lived in Hertford during the war. We will add another installment to the diary each month. Stay tuned!
It has been a right pleasant day, Pa and Ma went to church at Hertford. The Yankees came up in a boat. Took the vessels with goods and salt, tore up the bridge. A good many people passed here this evening. They say this bridge is to be taken.
Monday 12th, 1863 Jan. Well the Yanks didn’t get our bridge. A great many people have passed today. Part of them are moving from E. City up to Hertford. They are expecting a fight down there. We are I fear going to have a dreadful time. The Yanks armed about 30 Negroes in E. City today. Some came from Gatesville, no news up there.
