John Taylor Cuddy writes eight letters to his friends and family describing his experience as a soldier of the Union Army during the Civil War. "Our army has taken Richmond but we do not [know whether] they can hold it [or] not... [General Joseph] Hooker has crossed the river again I think he will nip the rebels this time," as Cuddy explains. Cuddy also requests his father, John H. Cuddy, to write him a recommendation for a furlough. Transcripts included.
