Abstract

This collection consists of letters written by Hiram Hogg of Letcher County, Kentucky, to his son, Henry C. Hogg, who served in the Union Army during the Civil War. The letters, dated March 1863, concern news from home, and mention another son, Hiram, who joined the Confederates, which the elder Hogg could not understand.

Scope and Content

This collection consists of two letters written by Hiram Hogg of Letcher County, Kentucky. Hogg wrote the letters to his son, Henry C. Hogg, while the younger Hogg served in the Union Army during the Civil War. The letters, dated Booneville March 1, 1863, and July 2, 1863, concern news from home, especially the hard times that the rebels were giving them in Owlsey County. Hogg also reports the deaths of neighbors and mentions his other sons who were fighting in the war too. One son, Hiram, joined the Confederates, which the elder Hogg could not understand.
