StoryMap

Follow the travels of Sergeant Jerome Peirce by looking at the locations from which he sent letters during the American Civil War. This StoryMap looks at the letters Peirce sent from the time he first enlisted in the Union army in the summer of 1862 to the last letter he sent before he died in 1864 in the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. Each slide on the map will include hyperlinks to the letters that Peirce sent from that location.
