Abstract:

A paper by W. F. Shelley describing the Battle of Gainsville (28 August 1862), apparently composed in the 1890s.

Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of a handwritten memoir of the Battle of Gainsville (28 August 1862), a preliminary action to the second Battle of Bun Run (29-30 August 1862), read to the George W. Lennard Post of the Grand Army of the Republic, New Castle, Indiana, probably sometime during the 1890s. Shelley was evidently a member of the 19th Indiana regiment, which formed part of the famous "Iron Brigade" of the 1st Division, 1st Corps, U.S. Army. Much of the paper appears to be missing.
