Letters of Henry P. Garrison to Emily Aurora Bosworth and to her parents, John Fletcher Bosworth, his uncle and Augusta Sophronia Bosworth (typescript, 58 pg.), 1860-1863
His letters encompass the years of 1860 to 1863 and relate to his family the details of army life, battles he fought during the Civil War, and the hardships suffered by the Confederate troops. The letters convey his hopes for a quick end to the rebellion and that the Confederacy would be ultimately victorious. As the conflict continued, however, Garrison’s letters reveal the darker undertones of a war weary soldier who wanted to go home and see his family.
