Description:
These love letters from Civil War soldiers "show their sorrows of being apart, fears that the soldier would not return home, and hopes for the future after the war's end." In addition, "some of the letters are comical, as is the letter from an unknown soldier to a woman who evidently answered his 'lonely-hearts' advertisement." Includes images and transcriptions of this small collection of letters. From the University Libraries of Virginia Tech.
