Letters from the Storm: The Intimate Civil War Letters of Lt. J.A.H. Foster, 155th Pa. Volunteers
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.

This is a must have book for your Union regimentals bookshelf." -- November 2009 issue. Mr. Fox, after an extensive chapter documenting Civil War era Pittsburgh and Allegheny City as they appeared in the 1860s, "follows to the front" over 60 Pennsylvania and one West Virginia regiments, consisting of companies recruited in Allegheny County.

Remember Me: Letters Home from a Hospital Steward During the Civil War 1862-1864
REMEMBER ME: LETTERS HOME FROM A HOSPITAL STEWARD DURING THE CIVIL WAR, 1862-1864, DANIEL McKINLEY MARTIN, 2010 by Alan I. West. "One of the most common problems facing diary editors is determining how to arrange the collection of letters into a concise and meaningful format. Alan West has done the best job solving this problem that this reviewer has seen. He successfully creates the proper context in which to study the person as an individual, as well as through his family and profession." (CIVIL WAR NEWS, Jan. 2011 online) Daniel Martin was working as a druggist's clerk in Pittsburgh at the outbreak of the Civil War, and in the spring of 1862 he traveled to Wheeling to join a regiment with friends and neighbors from the Pittsburgh area. Leaving behind his young family, Daniel spent much of the war engaged in actions throughout West Virginia.
