Antrim H. Curtis (1842-1863) answered President Abraham Lincoln's call for soldiers on August 23, 1861, eventually rising to the rank of sergeant in the New Jersey Volunteers, Company I, 5th Regiment. According to Stryker's Register of Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Civil War 1861-65, he died at the US Army General Hospital in Aquia Creek, VA on May 23, 1863, of wounds received in action at Chancellorsville, VA. The Curtis letters offer a rare glimpse into the personal life of a young, newly-recruited Union foot soldier from Mount Holly whose powers of observation also made him a credible eyewitness to history during the early years of the Civil War.
