Description
This collection contains one clipping of a letter from James Hopkins Larkin to his sons during the Civil War.
Background
Pvt. James Hopkins Larkin (1809 - 1862) was probably born in Chesterfield, NH and lived in Andover, MA and Mount Tabor, VT. After a letter to his sons about their desire to enlist in the United States Army was published in a newspaper in 1861, Larkin joined Company G of the Seventh Vermont Volunteer Infantry the following year. The 7th VVI was a three-years' regiment that served in the western theater, primarily in Louisiana and Florida. Pvt. Larkin died of dysentery on October 15, 1862. He is buried in Chalmette National Cemetery in Louisiana.
