Company H
75th NYS Volunteer Infantry Regiment


In 1862 in Santa Rosa Florida, A.A. Frazee a sergeant in Company H of the 75th NYS Vol. Inf Regiment began a series of
daily diaries. On May 5th, Frazee made this entry:

Monday May 5th, 1862

I attended prayer meeting last evening, and enjoyed it very much--The tent was well filled, and the exercises were conducted
with spirit and interest. I wrote a letter to day, but on the whole I felt rather unwell, and remained at my tent in the afternoon
during battallion drill--No dress parade--It has been more cool and comfortable to day than it has before for a long time--I
have been thinking that the names of the members of Co. H would not be out of place in this book, so I will write them down here---
