LETTERS FROM THE STORM: THE INTIMATE CIVIL WAR LETTERS OF LT. J.A.H. FOSTER, 155th PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS. 2010 by Linda Foster Arden; Edited by Dr. Walter L. Powell. LETTERS FROM THE STORM is based on a collection of 101 letters written by Lieutenant Foster, mostly to his wife Mary Jane, while serving with the 155th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company K. Skillfully interspersed with Linda Arden's commentary about the events and situations of the era, these letters are a time capsule of the mid-nineteenth century. In many respects, Foster's letters mirror the comments made by soldiers on both sides: their efforts to seek comfort with news from home, their litany of complaints about the rigors of camp and battle, and their descriptions of men and events on the front lines. However, there is another dimension to Foster's letters that is much less common in Civil War correspondence;the intimate exchange of the couple's views on sex.
