Abstract
This paper is a study of four men during the time they were in the Civil War. The chief figure was James Mellor, a farmer from the Coulee Region. The letters they wrote home featured life in the camps, thoughts on the battles and their concerns of home conditions. The purpose of this paper is to examine the life of the common soldier as shown in these letters and published sources. Comparing their letters with other Civil War collections added insight into the thoughts and comments of the fighting men from La Crosse. -
