1864 Civil War Letters Wilkins Pike Colonel Samuel Campbell Cherryfield Maine

This listing is for great collection of 4 rare original Civil War era letters. One is from a 17 year old soldier writing home from Tennessee. Two are written by Samuel Campbell to his brother serving in the war (The Colonel Samuel Campbell House is a historic house in Cherryfield, Maine). One mentions the Army of the Potomac driving the confederate forces south into the Gulf of Mexico. The larger size letters measure about 7" x 8 3/4" inches and are on stationary with a cool embossed railroad watermark in the corner. The letters are in good condition with moderate creasing and discoloration. There is a small tear on the edge of one of the smaller letters, and some small holes in the corners of the larger ones. Please see the detailed photos below and contact us with any questions before bidding. The photos show the exact items you will receive. Don't miss your chance to win!

One from Henry Wilkins to his aunt written March 25, 1864 in Nashville. He talks about his regiment guarding a stretch of railroad, and how playing ball every day made them hungry enough to eat Uncle Sam's salt pork!

Henry Wilkins (1847-1910) At the age of 15 years enlisted in the Union army and fought throughout the remainder of the Civil War. Born and died in Vermont.

One is from H Pike, written February 18, 1864 in Washington. It talks about a requested discharge of a Navy sailor, and the objections of the Navy Department.

Two are from Sam W Campbell to his brother Gleason, written March 27th and May 8th, 1864 in Cherryfield, Maine. Their grandfather Alexander Campbell was a successful lumberman in Cherryfield, and there is talk of loading and shipping logs on ships in the river. There is mention of news from the Army of the Potomac, where Grant "whipped them in the first engagements - hope he will follow it up and keep doing just so, until he cleans them out of Richmond and so on, driving every one of them into the Gulf of Mexico".

Samuel Campbell (1775-1833), son of Alexander Campbell (1731-1807). The Gen. Alexander Campbell House is a historic house on United States Route 1 in Cherryfield, Maine.
