The Civil War affected nearly every family in the North and South, having the highest number of casualties per capita of any war in which the United States has been involved. The 620,000 men who died represented 25% of all soldiers. Dr. Edwin Sinnet and his wife, Sarah Wright Sinnet, of Granville were among those affected by the war. Dr. Sinnet served as a field surgeon and as medical director of hospitals near the battlegrounds. Sarah was his young wife, left at home to cope with the difficulties of managing a household and two young children during his years of service. This volume reproduces excerpts from the letters they wrote to each other during those tumultuous years. The letters are a fascinating glimpse into their daily lives and concerns, containing comments on why the war was necessary, the life of soldiers in camp, instructions on how to handle money matters, and the ailments of people on the homefront.
