Diaries or journals, like letters, give us first-person accounts of past lives. Unlike letters, their audiences were more circumscribed, therefore; they may be more personal and intimate. In addition they have the advantage of revealing the thoughts of an individual for a longer, more sustained time frame. Unfortunately, very few diaries from Trenton and its environs are available. If you have any information about an existing diary please contact Gary Nigh at Listed below are some known Trenton diaries:
