His diary contains hand-sketched diagrams and vivid descriptions of skirmishes along the Southern Coast, including the battle at Marianna, Florida, on September 25, 1864. He also recorded guard lists with the names of his fellow soldiers. Samuels use of language captures the flavor of the time and exhibits great patriotism for the Union cause, as well as the adventurous spirit of a young man counting on his luck to survive the war. Samuel intended to write a large book and have it a little interesting when he got home. His diary was handed down through three Doble generations before that aim was realized.
