This is a collection of letters written to newspapers during the Civil War by soldiers and citizens of Columbia County in Pennsylvania; many of the letters were published in Bloomsburg's three local newspapes: Columbia Democrat, The Star of the North, and Columbia County Republican; the soldiers' letters were important sources of information for the local populace, since many had friends and relatives serving in the regiments recruited from the county; collectively, these letters reveal not only the attitudes and political views, but also the culture, language, and values of the people of Columbia County in the mid-19th century (brown & black covers with black lettering, very slight edgewear; otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy).
