Overview
"Whole Hog or none," exclaimed one 'Spunky' Lamoille County soldier mid-way through the Civil War war. Another opined that he took "delight in fighting the rebels," while a third despaired of surviving the conflict. This volume includes than 200 letters home from these and more than 80 other soldiers, many appearing in the Lamoille Newsdealer, plus "A Family Affair," documenting many of the multiple family members from the county who served during the war. Compiled by Lamoille County historian Deanna French and edited by Tom Ledoux, webmaster of the Vermont in the Civil War project, the attitudes expressed in these letters confirm the 'spunkiness' that has characterised the character of the county's history as far back as the War of 1812, and some say continues today. The letters are from enlisted men and officers, from educated men and some barely literate, but all involved in life; in the camps and on the battlefields, all the while concerned with what was happening back home in their absence.
