[ARCHIVED] Pontiac Civil War Captain's letters released

The University of Iowa Libraries has just launched a three year project to blog the letters of Pontiac Civil War Captain J.F. Culver (Great-grandfather of former Iowa Senator Culver and great-great-grandfather of former Iowa governor Culver). His letters extensively detail the lives of the men of his company, all from Pontiac or Livingston County and discuss the matters affecting his wife at home. The letters will be posted on the blog 150 years to the date when each was written.
