I found the online diary of A.L Peel.
Adjutant, 19th. Mississippi Regiment (http://www.mississippiscv.org/MS_Units/19th_MS_INF.htm)

"June 12 - We were mustered into service this morning. The boys think that there is no use of talking for their hands are tied Add, Pryor & I have been drilling the company today it is very warm. We got our arms today, We don't like the muskets We cant give the yankeys justice with them. "

I found that line a bit interesting.
Here is the link to the entire thing: http://freepages.family.rootsweb.com/~peel/61peelmayjune.html

Then there are links to the side for the rest of the diary.

"June 19, 1861 - I went down Town today and bought a pair of shoes some paper & a Blanket, the nights are pretty cool up here. Days are very warm I got some ice cream & cakes in Town & saw a few peaches."

I also liked that entry.
This is great primiary source material.
