Writen by J. Engelbrecht, Frederick Maryland, Saturday, July 9 1864 at 5 ½ oclock pm.
The Rebel army or rather the wagon train and its Cavalry and Infantry Guards passed through Frederick this day – the wagons numbered 300 or 400 – they came first about 6 Ock am. From the west (from Hagerstown) and got through about one O’clock pm. – but still Squads of horsemen of 10.p of 20.b have been passing all the time – Where the main army is at this time, we cannot say – as we are completely isolated and can hear nothing from either point of the compass. Except what the Rebs tell us but on that we cannot depend – we had a small engagement at the west end of the town two days ago (July 7, 1864) – but the Union troops all left here last night. – a few days will let us breathe a little freer – at the same time, I would remark the union people of our own do not appear to be very much alarmed – as we had the whole Rebel Army in our town once before (Sept 6, 1862) - the present Army is Commanded they say by genl, Jubal Early.

The Diary of Jacob Engelbrecht--From 1819 to 1878, Jacob Engelbrecht recorded Frederick County history in the pages of his hand-bound diary. He included topics ranging from national events, such as the Civil War, to those of local importance. He included the activities of his daily life as well as his thoughts about the issues of the day. The diarist also recorded marriages, births, deaths and other milestones of the community. Engelbrecht’s diary provides historians and genealogists a unique opportunity to discover Frederick County’s rich heritage. The hardcover, two-volume version is printed on acid free paper and features an improved presentational format. It also includes a comprehensive index, passages not available in previous publications and translations of German passages.
