Abstract:

The group of items consists of transcripts of twelve letters written by soldiers of the California Battalion during their service in the Civil War (these letters were originally printed in the Steamer edition of the Alta California). Sergeant Thomas H. Merry, of Company L, wrote five of the letters; the other seven are anonymous or signed only with initials or a first name. In the letters, the soldiers talk about their trip to Massachusetts, life in camp and their training, their skirmishes with Mosby and his 43rd Virginia Cavalry Battalion, Colonel Charles Lowell, freedmen in Virginia, their defense of Washington, D.C., the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, their dislike of Massachusetts and the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, and the Battle of Cedar Creek. Included with this group of transcripts are a typewritten chronology of the unit's service and lists of soldiers taken prisoner or killed.
