"Superb collection of 500 letters; especially useful for the 1862 fall of Harpers Ferry and the 1865 fall of Richmond," CWB. Ripley organized a company of Vermont Volunteers while still in college. He saw action in the Shenandoah Valley Campaign in 1862 and was captured at Harper’s Ferry in September 1862. Promoted to Brigadier General in the Army of the James in August 1864, he led the first Union troops into Richmond when the Confederate Captitol fell.
