Letters Home to Sarah

Monday, 25 November 2013 | A Public Affair

Have you ever wondered how the Civil War relates to Wisconsin and what part citizens of Wisconsin played in the war? Find out more on this edition of APA.

On Monday November 25th, our host John Quinlan discussed the book, “Letters Home to Sarah: The Civil War Letters of Guy C. Taylor, Thirty-Sixth Wisconsin Volunteers” by Kevin and Patsy Alderson.

“Forgotten for more than a century in an old cardboard box, these are the letters of Guy Carlton Taylor, a farmer who served in the thirty-sixth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment in the American Civil War. From March 23, 1864 to July 14, 1865, Taylor wrote 165 letters home to his wife Sarah and their son Charley.”- UW Press
