Imagine clearing out your family attic and finding an old wooden box jammed with hundreds of letters written during the Civil War. You soon discover they are written by two brothers serving in the First Vermont Brigade of the Union Army. The letters offer an eye witness description of the battles of the Peninsula Campaign, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Cedar Creek as well as an in-depth account of regular army life. Using the letters, Carleton Young and few other researchers were able to weave together their dramatic war-time narrative into a book entitled Voices From the Attic: The Wiiliamstown boys in the Civil War.
