According the a series of journals (1863-1865) published in 1996 as War journal of Louis N. Beaudry by a great-great grandson, these journals had been left behind when Beaudry's eldest daughter Millie and her family moved from their home in the 1930s (p. ix). Beaudry lived by a personal philosophy of Nulla die sine linea, or Let no day pass without a line. His journal entries include poetry, spiritual insights, thoughts on life, and expressions of imagination and creativity. A great majority of his entries after his marriage were written in short hand and await translation.
