The Delbridge - Northup Civil War Correspondence Collection largely consists of correspondence between members and friends of the Northup family during and after the American Civil War. The majority of the letters were written by James E. Northup while he was stationed in Virginia and Maryland. James made reference to many battles, forts, and officers. He also reported to the people at home how the "Lodi Boys" were faring as soldiers. Other letters in the collection are those Samuel Northup sent after he joined the Union in 1862 until his death in February 1863. Also included are letters Catherine (Kate Northup) Lambert received after the war from her brothers and friends. These letters exemplify typical family and social relationships in the 1800s.
