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.
