Scope and Content

Union soldier from Connecticut in the Civil War. Two letters written January 6, 1863, and n.d., from Tennessee and Virginia, to Franklin Sherwood of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Writes that he was sick the night of the fight (possibly the Battle of Murfreesboro), and asks what the people back home think of the war.
