Collection - Augustus Holmes Papers (c.00108)

This collection consists of Civil War letters written by Augustus Holmes of the 6th Michigan Cavalry. Holmes describes his experiences on guard duty, on scouts and raids into Virginia, and in army hospitals. There are frequent references to his brother Edwin and stepbrothers Frank and Alvah Marsh, also in the army. Augustus Holmes enlisted in the 6th Michigan Cavalry in 1862. He spent several months on guard duty in Washington, D.C., before his regiment saw active service. Holmes was wounded in the battle of the Wilderness in May, 1864, and the wound kept him in army hospitals for the remainder of the war.
