Pearce Civil War

Pearce Civil War is a collection of letters and documents written by Texas soldiers and/or pertaining to the history of Texas at the time of the Civil War. These documents illustrate the war through the first-hand accounts of Texas soldiers as they experienced it as well as the first-hand accounts by wives and civilians of life on the Texas home front. Some of the letters and documents were created after the war, thus documenting post-war life in Texas. These documents provide a crucial window into a portion of both Texas and Civil War history that is lesser-known but vital to a complete understanding of both. They are all the more significant for their first-person perspective and the personal stories they reveal; everyday life did not stop during the war and this collection gives students and scholars a glimpse into the lives of Texas soldiers and their families during one of the most turbulent times in American history.
