Description

The collection consists primarily of letters between Joseph G. Rhea (1837-1925) and his wife Mary (1844-1900), before and after they were married, beginning in 1860 and ending in 1865. Mostly they are of a personal nature but there is information on Rhea's military service with the Subsistence Department of Tennessee and the 62nd Tennessee Infantry of the Confederate Army.
