Collection - Bamber Family Papers

The Bamber family papers consist primarily of correspondence written or received by members of the family of Joseph S. Bamber, a farmer residing in Oakland County, Michigan. The collection includes letters (1862-1865) to Bamber from members of the Hayes family, related to the Bambers by marriage. These letters describe civilian experiences during the Civil War and contain information on food prices, the draft, and "Copperhead" activity in 1864. The collection also contains Civil War letters (1861-1864) received by Edward H. Dickerman (3rd Michigan Infantry) from members of his family in Michigan and New England, and from his brothers Samuel (6th New Hampshire Volunteers) and James (8th Michigan Infantry). In addition, there is one letter from Miles Predmore to his brother (1864), describing army life at Fort Creighton in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Predmore and Dickerman's relationship to the Bamber family is unclear.
