Summary
In folder 1 of 3 is the regimental history for the Sixth Indiana, which fills thirty pages in a blank book. Folder 2 of 3 contained the biography and reminiscences of William Doll, which were photocopied from pages 1 to 157 of the original ledger book, which is in a box labeled 3 of 3. The narrative portion of the ledger ends at page 271. From pages 272 through 290, William Doll compiled an appendix with tables "regarding the field of operations of the Regiment, Battles, eight campaigns, the original organization of the field and company officers, together with my own travels both with and separate from my company, also cities, states, mountains, rivers, etc. through which I passed."
Biographical or historical data
William Henry Harrison Doll was born on August 14, 1844, in Moores Hill, Dearborn County, Indiana. David Doll, his father who named him, was an ardent Whig and admirer of General Harrison. William's mother was Hester Ann Smullen. The main business in Moores Hill was making barrels for whiskey and pork packing. In March 1853, when William was eight, his family moved to Jennings County where David Doll owned 80 acres and engaged in farming. Joining the Sixth Indiana Regiment at North Madison for three years' service, William recorded the regiment's history from August 25, 1861 until the Battle of Shiloh on April 7, 1862. In a separate ledger book, William recorded his memories beginning with his birth on August 14, 1844 until April 1865 when the Civil War ended. He wrote his reminiscences in 1874 at Columbus, Indiana, and revised the manuscript in 1892 in Indianapolis. William married Laura Keepers, and had at least two children: Chester W., born in 1874 or 1875; and Daisey M., born about 1883. William died March 5, 1904 in Columbus, Indiana.
