About the Digital Collection
Collection consists, for the most part, of letters written to Sallie (Umstott) Arnold between 1864 and 1866 by Union soldiers and friends. The correspondence is mostly personal. There is also a description of a train trip from McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania, to Peoria City, Illinois, in 1866, and a description of a Dunkard camp meeting, also in 1866.
Some materials and descriptions may include offensive content. More info
