700 Wounded Chatanooga Alabama Rebels


This is a great group of 10 letters from the Coffinberry family from Michigan from the 1830s to the Civil War.There is great content throughout and it is in good condition.Here is a better idea of what is in the collection:

6pp, 5 x 8 in. ALS, Centerville, GA,5 July1864. To sister. This has less description of the war, other than to describe their camp in a lovely grassy and shaded lot, and their offices in a classic southern mansion. He seems to be sparing his female sibling the negative aspects of the war and only describing the “domestic” details for her. The only complaint typical of soldiers was about the heat in Nashville and the implication that southern heat was worse than northern heat.


2pp, 5 x 8 in. Russell House, Detroit, 15 Jan. 1864. ALS from (H or F.C.) Coffinberry to brother telling him to have Andrew stop by and visit before rejoining his Regiment, and suggesting he will likely be able to get some recruits in Detroit. This is likely one of Wright’s brothers.


2pp, 5 x 8 in., Mansfield, OH, 23 Nov. 1861. A.B. Coffinberry to sister Rebecca. Mostly personal, but tells her he has lost his trunk, and as soon as he finds it he is coming back to Michigan.I must get my trunk first, then hurry to Marshall. I am afraid I will not be there in time.The MI 1stEng. Unit, into which Andrew had enlisted, mustered in at Marshall, MI on 6 Dec. 1861.

4pp, approx. 8 x 10 in., n.p., 11 April 1847. From John M. Beach to W.L. (Wright L.) Coffinberry. Mostly personal, some about the death of Jonathan Beach.

4pp, approx. 8 x 10 in., Springfield,18 April1838. Letters to both Eunice and W.L. Coffinberry from J.G. Beach. Mostly personal, wanting to know if they are coming in the spring or summer.

1p, 6.5 x 12.5 in. Letter to Wright Coffinberry, Mansfield, OH, 19 May 18?? (date and some text missing from right side of letter).

3pp, 8 x 10 in., Mansfield, 18 April 1839. Letter to W.L. Coffinberry. Writer’s name torn off with entire lower right corner of last page, but appears it could be one of the Beaches.

3pp, 7.5 x 12.25 in., Mansfield,4 May1839. Letter to Wright Coffinberry from J.C. Gilkerson (?). Personal and business.

Bridgeport, AL,13 May1864. Soldier letter to Father.Our Regt. have the Block Houses and defences to build and may be left back this summer for that purpose.Nearly all the troops have gone to the front. We get little news from them as to the movements but there was considerable fighting and heavy skirmishing yeaterday. 700 wounded were brought in to Chattanooga day before yesterday. The Medical Doctors says there is the largest amount of hand and arm wounds he ever say [sic - saw], accounted for probably, as they fought in the woods, behind trees &c. Our telegraph Ops. tells us that Head Qtrs. are in Dalton to day. Telegraph established there. The Rebs are pretty strongly posture (?) in the mountains, but as soon as they are dislodged from there, nothing will stop the Army this side of Atlanta. Every arrangements are being made to supply them at that point by Wagon train from where the R. Road stops. In case the Army are successful and move on to Atlanta I think we will move. I hope so at least for the road between Chattanooga and Nashville is loosing? all romance? I think our prospects were never as bright as now and this summers campaign is successful will wind up the song? for Confed’s.
