These materials all date from the American Civil War era. They were selected for digitization because they relate to the people and history of Oneida County, New York in which Hamilton College is located. A large portion of them relate to the 117th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment mustered in on August 8, 1862 at Oneida county.
These manuscript materials include 3,953 pages.
Every page of these letters and diaries has been transcribed and encoded in TEI to facilitate reading searching.
Digitization of this collection was made possible by grants from the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program through CLRC (Central New York Library Resources Council).
