Two letters from Sgt. Charles H. Roney of the Union Army to his parents, written on April 13, 1862, and June 30, 1862. He tells his parents of his company's plans to capture the Cumberland Gap and of his pay that he intends on sending home to them.
This letter is written by Rosecrans to a doctor at Medical Department Gen. Orders No. 2 on July 15th, 1863. It discusses military politics, the occupation of Knoxville by Bragg, and well wishes.
This collection consists of two letters written sixteen years apart. The first, possibly written around 1916, is by Colonel S. B. Moe describing his experiences during the Battle of Chickamauga in 1863. The letter was given to Anne Hyde, who wrote another letter in 1932 describing how she came into ownership of it.
A letter was written by Sgt. William A. Smith, Co. B 71 Ind. 6th Cav., on October 5, 1863. He talks about Union occupation north of Knoxville, TN and the increased price of goods and foods in the Confederate states as oppsosed to the Union. He also writes about a brigade of women marching and carrying the U.S. flag. The letter was submitted to Mr. J. O. Jones, postmaster of Terre Haute, Indiana, in hopes that he could get it published in the local newspaper.
