This richly descriptive series of over 600 letters details life in New York City during the critical years of the Civil War. The collection also includes two short diaries, an account book, and the letters of Chase's mother, which portray affairs at home in Hanover, New Hampshire.
These primary source materials form a lively and significant contribution to the study of American history.
