Nathaniel W. Bunker memoir
Collection Scope and Content Note
Show all series level scope and content notes
Nathaniel Bunker's 20 page memoir contains a concise account of his service in the Civil War, with a fairly heavy emphasis upon the Battle of the Wilderness and his wounding at Spotsylvania in May, 1864. Written thirty years after the fact, the memoir is slight on other details of his service, but does indicate something of the selectivity of memory, his attitudes toward the war and military service (as he recalled them).
