Civil War Telegram Series 1861–1865

The Pierpont Telegram Series consists mostly of telegrams received by Francis H. Pierpont between June 1861 and May 1863. The vast majority of communications concern military matters. Many messages regard the raising and outfitting of troops, and the appointment of officers.
