The collection primarily contains Civil War era correspondence from Union soldier Oscar F. Hale, Ohio Infantry, 44th Regiment
(Vol), Co. D and Ohio Cavalry, 8th Regiment (Vol), Co. D. to his sister. Also included are a possibly unrelated 1845 letter
to an Uncle Kristian (apparently in a Scandanavian language) and a small amount of ephemera, including a clipping about Edward
Everett Hale's "The Man Without a Country" [connection to Oscar F. Hale unknown].
