Primarily correspondence of Edward Leigh Cook, a resident of Nunday, N.Y. Cook was a Civil War Union soldier who served with
the 100th New York Infantry, Co. F. and Co. H. The letters date from September 17, 1862 to September 6, 1865. Almost all were
written to his parents and sisters while Cook served in Virginia, South Carolina, and Florida. (There is at least one item
that seems to have been written by a comrade to Cook's sister Laura).
