Description

“Writing Home: Civil War Letters from the Hinchey Family Archive” includes more than 60 letters written from 1861 to 1865 by soldiers J. Ansel Booth, George F. Happ, and several others. The letters are printed unabridged and provide firsthand accounts of battles, the soldiers’ anguish when they learned that a Gates comrade had been captured by the rebels, descriptions of their everyday life in camp, and their personal and often poignant thoughts on the Union, slavery and war.
