About the Digital Collection
Collection of letters with subjects including business and personal affairs; "Traveller's Rest," (Buckingham County, Va.); vaccinations; and freemasonry. Also contains a soldier's letter discussing Confederate cavalry operations in 1863, mentioning food, clothing, horses, troop movements, and fighting. Confederates, as well as Union troops, are guilty of depredations: "our men in many respects equaled the Yankees in the way of plundering and rogueing."
