Summary
Papers, 1862-1876, of Corinda H. Tyler of Louisa County, Virginia, including two letters, a diary, and a poem. The letters are from her brother, William S. Gentry, of Company A, 23rd Virginia Infantry Regiment. In the first letter, dated 1 February 1862, Gentry talks about the regiment's actions in West Virginia in early 1862, and describes camp life and living conditions. The second letter, dated 10 April 1862, includes a description of the Battle of Kernstown and the actions of the 5th Virginia in defense of an artillery battery during the battle. There is a transcription of the second letter. The dairy, 13 April 1863 – 12 February 1876, primarily consists of prayers and thoughts of distress over the death of her brother at the Battle of Sharpsburg rather than an account of daily activities. The poem, entitled "My Brothers Grave," concerns the death of her brother
