This collection of letters was written by a young infantryman, Henry Kauffman, during his service in the American Civil war. The letters should appeal to Civil War enthusiasts, mainly because of their style and the personality of the young man who penned them. Although registered as "blacksmith" in the Company Descriptive Book of the 110th Regiment of the Ohio Infantry, Henry Kauffman insisted upon serving as a front-line infantryman throughout the war. His unit was involved in some of the more intense fighting in the war, particularly in the Shenandoah Valley. He was captured by the Confederates at one point and "paroled". He deserted, was caught and returned to duty. Later he was wounded and finally mustered out of a military hospital.
