The University of Maryland has an interesting collection of sixty two letters from a family who lived in Maryland during the Civil War. This project consists primarily of Tillie Farquhar Sterling’s correspondence with her mother, which can provide an interesting look into daily life in Maryland between 1862 and 1864. Other letters in the collection include those written by Tillie’s husband, who was an officer in the US army. In addition, the site has a short essay that provides more information on the family’s history. The New York State Library also has a collection of letters from this family, although they have not been digitized yet.
