Notes

Summary:
Diary. The dates of the Prince diary are as follows: January 10, 1836-January 7, 1837; January 8, 1837-January 26, 1838; January 27, 1838-January 17, 1839; April 5, 1842-April 25, 1842. This diary is one of the few illustrated first-hand accounts of the Second Seminole War, important because Prince was a talented and accurate sketch artist. It chronicles the day-to-day observations of Lt. Henry Prince as he served his country through battle with the Seminole Indians in Florida.
