Abstract:

This collection consists of letters written by Ben Glover to his wife Betty from 1862-1865. Glover primarily writes about household affairs, giving Betty instructions on what to do, who to trust and what to send him.

Glover also keeps Betty updated on the movement of his regiment. He mentions fighting in Chattanooga and on the Chattahoochee River, Tenn. and Atlanta, Ga. Generals Buckner, Grant, Lee, Sherman and Johnson are written of as well. Glover also writes of the difficulty in getting approved leave and describes the shooting of a deserter. Grover additionally notes being wounded during the Battle of Chickamauga.

Many of the letters in this collection are fading and often illegible.
