Summary
St. Louis physician and Southern sympathizer, Dr. McPheeters' experience with Federal arrest and banishment, plus his day-by-day account of life in camp and with the local populace, gives an excellent picture of the impact of the Civil War in the Western Theater. His daily diary is the first known daily account by a Confederate medical officer. The journal appears here in its complete and original form, exactly as the doctor first wrote it, with the addition of editors' full annotation and vivid introduction to each section
