June 14 1862 Awakening My name is Henry Campbell and I have just enlisted in the Union Army But first let me tell you a little bit about myself I was born in Muncle Indiana June 20th 1842 Right now I am 19 years of age and have been assigned as Corporal of the Indiana Light Battery because of my good leadership courage and a strong lust for war My parents are Harvey and Janet Campbell and before the war had started we ran a successful dry goods store Our economic standing is pretty good I would say and we can afford to buy what we like My job used to be as a dry goods clerk for my father and I had made a decent amount of money but I felt that I needed more than just money to live a good life My parents did have some disagreements with me joining the Union Army but I had finally convinced them to let me go I had nothing to do with my life just like many of my friends who had done the same thing join the war and fight for whats right freedom equality and to be given a true name in history that would be heard from sea to shining sea I had one sibling a brother whose name was Gregory who died at the Battle of Bull Run at the age of 21 trying to defend the industrious Union lands Because of this I have gone off to fight against the dirty Southerners to avenge my brothers death to free the thousands if not millions of slaves and to reunite this beautiful land As you can see my stand on slavery is that I want all of the innocent slaves to be free to have them regain their freedom to stop having them fear whites and to let them live freely and equally with white men My education
