Abstract:

The collection is comprised of transcriptions of letters to and from various members of the Donohoe family, as well as the last will and testament of Stephen George Donohoe and the obituary of Stephen Joseph Donohoe.

The letters, dating from July 1861 to March 1865, contain notes in the margins made by Mary Walton Livingston, granddaughter of Stephen George Donohoe. Letters from the soldiers in the collection describe poor food and conditions at camp, fighting in breastworks, and injuries and deaths during the Civil War. Battles mentioned include First Manassas (July 1861), Spotsylvania Courthouse (May 1864), Battle of the Wilderness (May 1864), skirmishes with Union troops near Petersburg, Va. (July 1864), and skirmishes between White's 35th Battalion and the Loudoun Rangers. Family members write with local news and express concern for those serving. Stephen George Donohoe's will and the obituary of Stephen Joseph Donohoe are also included in the collection.
