Newton Harvey Anderson - 1st Sergeant   
My great great uncle. He was from Anna area in Southern Illinois. I have typewritten copies of a couple of years from his diary and near the end of it he talks a little of a 'sharp battle with the rebels' and mentions battle at Raymond MS. In the diary he lists the complete roster of Company E, 81st Illinois Infantry. His brother Ervin was also in Co. E and survived Andersonville. My great grandfather, James Miller who was their brother-in-law was also a private in Company E.
