The Civil War was the first American conflict where most of the participants were literate, and many wrote about their experiences. W. Scott Keith (b. 1844), a native of Greenfield, Massachusetts, served as Sergeant in the Mass. 52nd Regiment. During the Port Hudson campaign in the spring of 1863, Scott became ill with dysentery and was twice hospitalized. While recovering at a Union convalescent camp in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, he and other soldiers considered unfit for duty repulsed a Confederate raid on June 28, 1863.
