A diary kept by Walter Scott Handley (1838-1903) following his discharge from the Union army in Austin, Texas, as he traveled north to Chillicothe, Missouri. In 1867, Handley moved his family to Oswego, Kansas, where he lived for the remainder of his life. The volume in which the diary was kept previously belonged to Handley's father, James, who used it as an account book and tailoring sketch book. For this reason, the orientation of the writing on the pages changes frequently. Included with the diary is a newspaper article from the February 15, 1979 issue of the Oswego Independent-Observer which transcribes Handley's diary entries.

Date: March 07, 1866-April 12, 1866
