Overview

The letters of Charles Washington Kennedy cover his twenty-five months of service in the Nineteenth Army Corps. During his service in Louisiana Kennedy rose to the rank of captain serving on brtigade staff as an aide de camp. He saw action in the Teche, at Bisland, and Port Hudson before moving to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and The Army of the Shenandoah where he fought at Winchester, Fisher's Hill, and Cedar Creek. A graduate of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, Kennedy's highly literate letters give exceptional insight into the daily life in camp as well as the drama of battle. Adding to the richness of Kennedy's letters are over forty carte de visite photographs from his personal album collected during his service.
