My friend Lee Heggy has just finished transcribing a real treasure trove of letters of a private in the 141st NY.

There is a lot of material here, I'd suggest reading them slowly over time. The amount of campaigner material here will blow your mind!

Thanks for the heads up to that link! Good material there, for sure. I am always looking for CW-era letters.

Here are a couple nice ones I've found...
To & from Iowa soldiers:

To & from a soldier of the 14th Tennessee:

If anyone cares to share some other links to CW correspondance, I for one would welcome such.
