Abstract:

Papers of a Green Bay, Wisconsin, mayor (1854-1855), lawyer, and lieutenant colonel of the Second Wisconsin Cavalry during the Civil War.

Sometimes referred to as "Eugene," Eastman was also the son-in-law of prominent Green Bay businessman John Penn Arndt. The collection includes letters between Eastman and family members, particularly from his brother Benjamin, and to and from his wife, Elizabeth Margaret Arndt, and daughter, May. Most of the letters date from the 1840s. Topics of interest include: politics in the Wisconsin Territory (March 5, 1837; December 16, 1839; January 30, 1840; December 4, 1843), reasons for emigration from Maine (August 1, 1839), and travel problems en route to Wisconsin (July 22, August 1, and September 16, 1839). The majority of the letters deal with domestic concerns, such as health, family squabbles, and business advice. There are also letters written by Eastman while serving in the Civil War. These letters discuss health problems; living conditions; family problems; slaves; and his duties, including taking command of the Second Wisconsin Cavalry, Sixteenth Infantry, Tenth Ohio, and a battery of artillery (October 17 and 27, 1863). Eastman wrote from Helena, Arkansas; Memphis, Tennessee; and Vicksburg, Snyders Bluff, and Redbone Church, Mississippi. Also included in the collection are a few letters to and from other family members, including a November 5, 1837 letter from Alexander Irwin to John Penn Arndt, discussing territorial politics and mentioning the schooner "Wisconsin." Other materials in the collection include genealogies of the Arndt and Eastman families.
