Many of these soldiers served the Union for the duration of the war, from the early fighting in Missouri to Shiloh, Vicksburg, and Shermans destructive marches through Georgia and the Carolinas. Their letters home are Lyftogts primary sources, as are editorials and articles published in the Cedar Falls Gazette.
