Program: "Civil War Letters Home to Sarah from Guy C. Taylor,
36th Wisconsin Volunteer"
Speakers: Kevin & Patsy Alderson

Forgotten for more than a century in an old cardboard box, these are the letters of Guy Carlton Taylor, a farmer who served in the Thirty-Sixth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment in the American Civil War. From March 23, 1864, to July 14, 1865, Taylor wrote 165 letters home to his wife Sarah and their son Charley.
