May - August 1862

Thomas William Dick writes five letters to his family describing his experience as a soldier in the Union Army during the Civil War. Dick discusses daily life in the military camp, in addition to his own thoughts on the war. "I think none of us now doubt the valor of the southern troops... But I think their artillery and small arms both much inferior to ours and they are engaged in a bad cause which is why we are mostly successful." Transcripts included.
