A study of Union soldier Samuel Glyde Swain's diaries has provided insight into what life was like at Mississippi's Fort McPherson during the Civil War. Natchez National Historical Park Service historian Jefferson Mansell has been studying those and other historical documents and writings, and will present his findings next month at the Natchez Literary Cinema Celebration. "It was pretty exciting," Mansell said of the diaries. "You felt like you just hit a treasure trove of information about the fort."
