He describes his experiences in camp in San Francisco and in engagements with insurgents in the Philippines. Two diaries also cover Limbird's experiences in the Philippines in 1899. In addition, the collection contains newspaper articles concurrent with the conflict and later articles pertaining to Limbird's service.
