"Christian K. Nissley of East Donegal Twp., Lancaster Co., PA, from January 1, 1860-March 30, 1867. It is a good window into the Civil War period, midway between the early Federal period and the threshold of the Industrial Revolution, as well as the Great Awakening of the Mennonite world. This diary is a priceless treasure connecting the ancient with newer Mennonite thought." [from the publisher]
