Army Acting Assistant Surgeon on General Rufus Saxton's staff, and Esther became a teacher of freedmen, both civilian and military, with the National Freedmen's Relief Association. It is at this point that Esther's diary begins. Gerald Schwartz has divided this book into three major parts the foreword in which the Hawks's early lives are sketched; the diary, from three composition books which were salvaged from trash in 1975 (Schwartz thinks there is a fourth diary volume, but it has not turned up) and covering the period from October 1862 to November 1866; and an afterword in which he describes Esther's and Milton's respective careers in medicine, business, and reform from the end of the diary until their deaths in the early 1900s. The editor has carefully footnoted all three parts. The entries in the diary cover Esther Hawks's several teaching and administrative assignments—her medical practice was very limited in the Sea Islands, including Hilton Head Island, Florida mainly Jacksonville, and Charleston, South Carolina.
