Dr. Oscar De Wolf to Sarah Hathaway Forbes, July 9, 1862
Hilton Head, South Carolina , July 9, 1862. My Dear Mrs. Forbes ,
— Your box reached us safely this morning. A steamer leaves for New York in two
hours, and I make haste to tell you how much I wish that every regiment in the
service had a Mrs. Forbes to loo...

Captain Charles Fessenden Morse, September 1, 1862
Bivouac Between Centreville And Bull Run, September 1, 1862. We have been moving around for the last two days in about
the same style as heretofore. Yesterday morning, we were routed out early and
marched, by a very wide detour, thirteen miles to this place...

Major-General John Sedgwick to his Sister, February 17, 1864
February 17, 1864. My dear sister: I received your last letter three days since. It is not
often that I allow one of your letters to lie so long unanswered. General Meade
has returned and resumed command. This has relieved me from some anxiety and a
daily r...

Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: January 18, 1862
Gen. L P. Walker, the first Secretary of War, is assigned to
duty in the Southwest under Gen. Bragg. How can he obey the orders of one who
was so recently under his command? I think it probable he will resign again
before the end of the campaign. SOURCE: Jo...

Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: January 20, 1862
Mr. Memminger advertises to pay interest on certain government
bonds in specie. That won't last long. He is paying 50 per cent. premium
in treasury notes for the specie, and the bonds are given for treasury notes.
What sort of financiering is this? SOURCE: ...

John L. Motley to Mary Lothrop Motley, February 16, 1862
Vienna , February 16, 1862. My Darling Mary :
You complain of not getting letters often enough, and you think I might write
more than I do. But, my dear child, you must remember how little of interest we
have to speak to you about, and how many corresponden...

John Brown to Mary Ann Day Brown, March 6, 1857
Hartford, Conn ., March 6, 1857. Dear Wife , — I
enclose with this a letter from Owen, written me from Albany. He appeared to be
very much depressed before he left me; but there was no possible
misunderstanding between us that I knew of. I did not pay Samue...

Major Wilder Dwight to Elizabeth White Dwight, October 13, 1861
pleasant Hill, Maryland , October 13, 1861. Dear Mother , —
Opie mixed his colors “with brains, sir,” and with brains we have just done a
clever thing near Hatteras. Let us keep the brains at work. As for our own
thoughts, they were excited this morning by ...

Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: January 19, 1862
There has been a storm on the coast, sinking some of the
enemy's ships. Col. Allen, of New Jersey, was lost. He was once at my house in
Burlington, and professed to be friendly to the Southern cause. I think he said
he owned land and slaves in Texas. SOURCE...

Diary of John Beauchamp Jones: January 21, 1862
A great number of Germans and others are going to Norfolk,
thinking, as one remarked, if they can't go to the United States the United
States will soon come to them. Many believe that Burnside will get Norfolk. I
think differently, but I may be mistaken. SO...
