Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am looking for primary source material (i.e. letters, diaries, journals, reminiscences, newspaper articles, and other postbellum accounts)for Kenosha County 1860 residents Major Thomas H. Mars, Major Levi Howland, Commissary Sergeant Samuel L. Orvis, Captain Josiah Bent, Captain John Hyde, Second Lieutenant Chester M. Leonard, and Second Lieutenant Josiah Bent. Any other material regarding the regiment would be appreciated.
These men were officers of the 1st Wisconsin Cavalry. I am looking for material for this regiment pertaining to the time period of September 22 - October 30, 1863.
Thank you in advance for your assistance. Please let me know if you have any questions.
