1 CHARLES J. PETERSON [?] 1862 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT CIVIL WAR ERA DIARY CHRONICLING THE TRAVELS AND TRAVAILS OF A CIRCUIT RIDER TEACHER IN CENTRAL NEW YORK STATE
New York, New York NY USA Oneida Chenango county 1862 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is a super detailed Civil War era diary by a circuit-rider school teacher who we believe was a Charles J. Peterson of Philadelphia who details his visits, stays, 'scholars' and local events of the area he serviced in central New York state. The author has connections to the area as he mentions births and funerals specifically related to him and his family. This diary will prove a wealth of genealogical and historical first hand information in central New York State specifically Oneida and Chenango counties. Each day begins with where our author will sleep that night. He also records the number of students daily and then makes a separate note in the margin. Research suggests he is paid by the number of students he teaches per day. The writer is also very involved in the communities - singing schools, assisting in farm chores; hauling wood, taking up carpet, tapping sugar bush, cleaning up etc., being nominated at 'Caucus' to be a constable, meetings with the Teacher's Association, a child dying from diphtheria, his own bout with Scarlet Fever and so on. It seems teaching duties end in the spring when the weather improves and though he travels around a bit still our writer settles with one family for the summer and does farm labor for the most part. Diary is a small size measures 4" x 2 ½" & is all intact & clean with supple pages, some wear on spine.
