About Marshall's Diary
Marshall's diary contains details about the Sutton townsfolk with whom he interacted, many of whom are named. In the beginning of the year he is just finishing school, as well as working in his father's wagon shop and a saloon. Much of his free time is spent taking photographs and producing ambrotypes. One of his photography partners was a woman named only as "Nell". He also attends lectures on Emancipation and gives a "Declaration" at school on the subject of Bunker Hill. The diary ends with his travel to Concord and mustering out - it's possible he sent it home for safe keeping.
