Description

110 plus hand written letters detailing Williams serving with the 51st Mass. A cursory inspection has Williams writing of camp life, the epidemic (Cerebro Spinal Meningitis) that affected many of his fellow soldiers, his regimen in North Carolina and his rough voyage on the transport ship "Merrimac." One letter recounts a humorous incident in New Bern where a Confederate guerrilla was captured in women's clothing and was paraded around the camp and ridiculed by the men. A rare complete letter archive that tells the story of Williams nine month enlistment in the 51st Mass.
