James Baldwin Diary, Before 1843
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The James Baldwin Diary (1951-12-0) is a small diary containing a few pages of genealogical information of the Baldwin family including birth and death dates for several family members and describing how his family originally came to Litchfield. The majority of the diary is a retelling of American Revolutionary War. In part of the diary, Baldwin mentions the battle of Harlem Heights and a speech by George Washington. The diary was most likely written by James Baldwin, but the diary was most likely produced by Captain Abner Baldwin dictating to James Baldwin. There is a transcription of the diary kept in a seperate folder in the same box.
