Henry H. Fry, Soldier, Civil War Letters

 Collection
Collection Number: A&M.1552

Overview

Civil War letters from a Union soldier in the Army of the Potomac to his wife in Greene County, Pennsylvania. Fry was in the Peninsula Campaign, 1862, and later stationed at various islands off the South Carolina coast. In 1864 he was killed near Bermuda Hundred, Virginia. The letters reveal little about military movements, but do comment on camp life and fraternization between Union and Confederate soldiers.
