George Schubert papers
As a young man, George Schubert emigrated from Germany to Connecticut, and in September 1862, he enlisted in the 25th Connecticut Infantry. His letters to his wife Sophia during the Civil War are filled with news of his doings and his longing for home, including information on the siege and capture of Port Hudson and the skirmishes at Irish Bend and Bayou Lafourche.
