Group of Civilian War Dated Letters From Iowa,
Lot # - Group of Civilian War Dated Letters From Iowa,
lot of 14, with nine letters dated 1864 or earlier, primarily to Jacob Beaver of Pennsylvania from Iowa merchant Henry Shellenberger. The earliest correspondence concerns the particulars of Beaver's proposed move to Iowa, with Shellenberger mentioning on January 26, 1861 that Mr Sloans farm (is) 80 acres improved land and good house, Mr Sloan has been to California and returned, now wants to sell and move out his family… On May 30, 1861 the Civil War is first mentioned as soldiers are daily drilling here and leaving for war, but nothing compared to the numbers in Penna… a letter dated June 10, 1863 shows a changing dynamic with Shellenberger noting that I seen in the paper last fall that you were drafted. I told my wife how had Beaver come west he would not have been drafted… A "Jacob Beaver", likely Shellenberger's friend, enlisted in "G" Co., 133rd PA Infantry on August 11, 1862 only to be wounded at Fredericksburg in December. In any event, Beaver survived military service with the letters of 1864 resuming the discussion of his move to Iowa, this time attending to the particulars of travel. On March 16, 1864 Shellenberger writes I think from Chicago to the Mississippi River you can not get the emigrant line, but will have to take the regular passenger line…get your tickets for Fulton Illinois which is on the bank of the Mississippi river, directly opposite is Lyons, Iowa… The postwar letters indicate that Beaver had finally made his move as he receives family news from points east of Iowa.
