Collection - Alvah Marsh Papers (c.00110)

This collection consists of Civil War letters from Alvah Marsh describing his experiences, especially in army hospitals. He refers frequently to his brother, Frank, and stepbrothers, Augustus (c00108) and Edwin Holmes (c00109), who were also serving in the army. Alvah Marsh served with the 7th Michigan Infantry, primarily in Virginia. He was wounded in November, 1863, and spent the following months in various army hospitals, first as a patient and later as a nurse. He apparently received a medical discharge in 1864. An image of Alvah Marsh (post-civil war) is available on the Archives of Michigan site here.
