As a contribution to the Sesquicentennial of the US Civil War (1861-1865), I have digitally transcribed the nearly 150 wartime letters my Great-Grandfather John wrote from the field to Laura, his love at home (and future wife).
There are many handwriting samples and goodies, including a few endearing letters written by Laura to John.
The war's calendar years are mirrored in the low $1.86 price.
