Collections of letters written by company- grade officers often prove more interesting than those from enlisted men or higher-ranking officers. Dear Delia: The Civil War Letters of Captain Henry F. Young, Seventh Wisconsin Infantry certainly confirms that generalization and more. It is one of the best collections of Civil War soldier letters that has been published during the past decade. Henry F. Young was a mill owner who enlisted in the 7th Wisconsin Infantry and rose to the rank of captain. He was a conscientious volunteer who nevertheless revealed to both his wife Delia and his father the gritty realities of soldier life.
