Chicago Ledger, v. XLV, no. 50, December 15, 1917.

This week find us starting a new series of historical letters from the American Catholic Historical Association: the William C. White letters. White (dates of birth and death are unknown) was an Irish Catholic Union soldier from Philadelphia. He began his Civil War service as a volunteer with the 69th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers on August 19, 1861 and served in some of the bloodiest and most important battles of the War – Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. This collection contains letters from White to his parents in Philadelphia, recounting his experiences during the war. Of note are the letterhead stationary used by White; this week only the first few letters are available; check back soon for the next set.

As well a number of new popular culture titles are offered for your study. Especially interesting is: “How to be a detective”- a newly acquired part of the “Ten Cent Handbooks” series- some of the first modern how-to books to have been published in the United States. Finally take a look at a few of the World War I periodicals, newly digitized, such as “Needlework”, “Everyday life”, or “T. P.’s journal for men and women”.
