Samuel P Jeffers - Corporal   
I am the proud caretaker of my relatives first letter to his wife after arriving at Camp Butler in Springfield ILL. He told her about being sent to Cairo in the 47th regiment company F under the direction of a Captain Likes. He mentions several other people in the letter, but they seem to be civilians as I cannot locate them so far. In any case, it makes me proud to be related to such a fine soldier as he seems to be, as well as the gracious gentleman, loving husband, and proud father he seems to be. Curiously, the paper is embossed with a birds head on the corner that actually shows in varying levels of definition through the folded letter. I have it covered with a plastic sleeve to prevent any more fingerprints and I keep it safe from light. But it is a testament to the legacy of family and freedom!

Jehu G. Long - Private   
Due to poor transcription and record muddling, Jehu G. Long's service record has in some places, been incorrectly merged with a John Long of no relation. Jehu's company 'H' was reorganized into company 'D' which may have been the source of confusion when examining pension records. Jehu G. Long, my great-great-great uncle is buried in Sterling Cemetery, Sterling, Nebraska, alongside his wife and some of their children.
