Johnston, Catherine S.
The Robert Johnston papers consist of letters from a Confederate soldier in Virginia and Tennessee, written to his wife living in Albany, New York, between November 1863 and April 1865. The letters describe the difficulties of sending mail between the North and the South, and mention the legal complications of Confederate prisoners of war after the South’s surrender.
