The following letters where written by my great-great grandfather during the Civil War. They were compiled into a book a copy of which was given to my father.
The original letters are still around somewhere. My uncle has a copy of them, and is in the process of retranslating them, Albert apparently left out some things which dealt with the farm back in Minnesota. He is also planning to add information, gleaned from other sources, to fill in some of the gaps left by the letters.
If you would be interest in purchasing a copy of the new version my uncle is working on drop a note to BerntLetters@olmanson.org and I’ll add you to a list, and give you more information when (if) he is done.
