This collection was a gift to the Library by Corrine Carr Nettleton of
Charlottesville, Va. on May 5, 2000.
It consists of correspondence,
ca. 150 items, 1861-1863, between Charles Tenney, a Union soldier from Ohio,
and Adelaide Case, a friend from Mecca, Ohio. The collection includes three photographs.
Tenney is a Private in Company H of the Seventh Ohio Regiment.
The letters show the development of the romance between the
two as Tenney participates in numerous engagements during the Civil War.
