Guide To the Isaac C. Pugh Papers
Collection Number: 266
The Isaac C. Pugh Papers are primarily composed of letters written between members of the Pugh family, correspondence which provides insight into the lives of Union soldiers during the United States Civil War and those left behind on the home front. The bulk of the material is letters written by Isaac C. Pugh to his wife, Elvira E. Pugh, from the years 1861 to 1864. The papers also include letters by Pugh's son Isaac R. Pugh, commonly referred to as Rinaldo, and Elvira E. Pugh, the two most frequent correspondents after Isaac C. Pugh. Letters written by other family members, documents of the period, and contemporary press clippings regarding the United States Civil War are also contained within the papers.
Isaac C. Pugh of Decatur, Illinois, was in an advantageous position to report on the United States Civil War. From his vantage point as Colonel of the 41st Regiment of the Illinois Volunteers, he could see events as they were planned and report on them as they occurred. These reports were contained in the letters he sent to his wife, Elvira, and sons back home.
