Jared A. Stallings Papers

Identifier: MS 139

Scope and Contents

One biographical sketch of Jared Stallings and eighteen letters written by Jared Stallings to his wife Lizzie during the Civil War. Stallings' letters to his wife span from April 1862 to March 1865. He provides details on his location as well as comrades in his unit, the 41st Georgia Regiment. His wartime movements were limited to the deep south, specifically the states of Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina. He references Sherman's Vicksburg campaign, as well as the Battle of Baker's Creek, though he was not a participant. He never speaks directly about combat in which he was involved personally, though he vaguely mentions when he has been in the field. He references Confederate generals Johnston, Breckinridge, Pemberton, and Hardee, but only as context for the chain of command to which he answered.
