Descriptive List and Account of Pay of Members of Co. D, Batt. Cavalry W.T.L. for Brant Badger and H. Ray, 1863-12-31

 File — Box: 2, Folder: 17
From the Collection: The Brandt Badger Civil War letters (known previously as the Brandt and Callie Badger Papers) consist of approximately forty-two letters and four related documents dating from the United States Civil War. They are primarily letters from Brandt Badger to Callie Jones Badger written between 1861 and 1863 and reflect Brandt's activities in the Confederate military. Also included is a newspaper clipping, an invitation, a musical performance program, a small piece of petitpoint (a small example of cross-stitch), and Badger's official Confederate Army muster roll. The letters and documents reflect a number of issues, including daily camp life for the Confederate soldiers, hospital life, and a rather detailed letter narrating the battle of Holly Springs, as well as several other smaller skirmishes. They also offer a glimpse of the home front through letters from Brandt’s brother, and references made by Brandt from Callie’s letters, which unfortunately did not survive. The Badger Letters serve as the basis for Rex H. Stever and Barbara M. Stever, Oi Callie: The Civil War Letters of Brandt Badger (Dallas: Taylor Publishing Company, 2004), which place these materials in historical context.
