  1. Leslie’s uniform seems so ominous, but, given the timing, I hope he missed out on most, if not all, of the overseas experience.

  2. He did survive the war and lived to be 78 years of age. Leslie ultimately ended up with Isaac’s diaries and papers. After he died, his wife, Lawanda, donated the collection to the Iowa State Historical Society.
