Civil War Letters of a Union Soldier
No Place for Little Boys is a collection of Civil War letters written by Peleg Bradford, a twenty one year old Union soldier form Carmel, Maine. His letters to family and friends at home give great details of a typical soldier’s experience in garrison, camp, battlefield, and hospital. Bradford’s letters reveal the emotional hardships placed upon families during the war and the close ties of family and friends separated by strife. Many of his letters are a feature throughout the exhibits at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
