SNOWDEN DIARY? 

   In the category of "things found while looking up other things" 
   is this reference from the Guide to Civil War Manuscript & 
   Newspaper Collections at the Historical Society of 
   Pennsylvania: 

      Snowden, James Ross.  Diary (1864-65).  Co. 'I,' 23rd 
      PA  Infantry & Co. 'I,' 61st PA Infantry & Co.'I,' 61st PA 
      Infantry. Collection no. 616; call no. Am .1565. 

   The reference is on this web page: 
   http://www.hsp.org/library/guides/cwmss.html 

   Pete Smith's Snowden entry in "American Numismatic 
   Biographies" notes that "Snowden was appointed 
   Director of the Mint by President Pierce serving June 
   1853 to April 1861... He resigned to accept an 
   appointment with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania 
   and served there until 1873." 

   So ... does this diary belong to a different James Ross 
   Snowden?
