Over one hundred and fifty years after it began, the Civil War still fascinates us—the vast armies marching to war, iconic leaders like Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee, the drama of a nation divided. But the Civil War was also about individuals, the hundreds of thousands of ordinary men and boys who fought and died on either side and the families and friends left at home ...more

These letters home from Wisconsin soldiers to their friends, families and local newspapers, tells the story of these boys and men in all phases of the war - from camp life to battles to post-war.

A well selected collection of letters sent home by Wisconsin soldiers fighting in the Civil War. The letters provide vivid accounts of the war from beginning to end and represent a wide range of subject matter, from life in camp to the battle field, to hospital conditions and reflections on morality and politics. Many perspectives are represented.
