"Andrew Jackson Brown was a 17-year-old young man when he enlisted in Pontotoc, Mississippi, to fight in the War Between the States. He determined to keep a record of the battles as he experienced them It is mostly a very matter-of-fact presentation of where he was, who the commanders were, and what happened as they fought. He often served as the chaplain in his unit and he seemed to handle himself well in the out of doors, camping on the ground with very primitive eating arrangements. Two times he was imprisoned by the Union (or as he called them "Yankey") soldiers.
The diary he kept is now in the archives of the Evans Memorial Library of Aberdeen, MS. Each of his grandchildren have a typewritten copy of the diary; but there were many more who wished for a copy of their own. That is the impetus for the publication of Andrew Jackson Brown — Confederate Soldier. "
