Jonas A. Bradshaw papers

About the Digital Collection

Family correspondence of Bradshaw, 1st sergeant, Co. G., 38th N.C. Infantry, largely addressed to his wife Nancy and his parents. Letters discuss his participation in the defense of Richmond, 1862, and in the Battle of Gettysburg. The collection touches upon campaigns, camp life, and war weariness, but is limited mainly to reports on his health and his desire to be at home.
