This collection consists of one letter from Ward to his father, dated 28 July  and written at Ft. Ward. The plastic cover in which the letter was housed on arrival identifies Ward as a member of the 166th Regiment, Ohio Volunteers, a unit that was stationed at Ft. Ward from May to September 1864. The unit also too part in defending the city from Confederate General Jubal Early's raid of 11-12 July 1864, although that episode is unmentioned in this letter. Indeed, almost the whole of the letter relates to the health of Hale and his comrades in arms.

This collection is a letter from Jeremiah Hall to his brother, dated October 20, 1863, from Collierville, Tennesee. The letter refers to one of the skirmishes that took place as Sherman's troops were moving east toward Chattanooga in late 1863. Hall's unit was evidently one of those guarding the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, a target of frequent Confederate raids. Collierville was the site of four minor battles during late 1863; the one that Hall describes was probably that caused by Confederate Brigadier General James Chalmer's raid of mid-October 1863.
