Jerry Flint letter, August 13, 1861  Civil War Letters

  For the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the UWRF Archives created a
  blog to present letters, diaries, newspaper articles,and photographs from the
  American Civil War as a means of telling the story of the men and women who
  experienced this tumultuous time in American history. The items are all from
  the River Falls Area Research Center's 4-county area in Northwest Wisconsin
  (Burnett, Pierce, Polk, St. Croix counties). The letters and diaries have all
  been transcribed and digital copies of at least the first page of every letter provided.
