A series of "Letters from an Iowa Soldier in the Civil War" is now available. These letters are part of a collection written by Newton Scott, Private, Company A, of the 36th Infantry, Iowa Volunteers, from 1862 thru 1865. Scott's letters are filled with rich details of the war and the living conditions in the Union camps in Mississippi, Missouri, Iowa, and Arkansas. Not only do they offer a Company Clerk's detailed account of the war, they also provide a glimpse of the personal emotions of a 21-year old farm boy uprooted from family, friends and sweetheart.
