The items in this file relate to relatively unknown men who served in the American Civil War and wrote about their experiences. Collectively, they provide a glimpse into the impact of the war on average soldiers and their families. Researchers should note that the Andre De Coppet Collection contains many other materials related to the Civil War, which are filed under the names of specific authors and correspondents; this general "Civil War" file is simply for the benefit of grouping items which might otherwise be overlooked.
