10Author:  Whipple, CharlesRequires cookie*
 Title:  Charles Whipple Correspondence Collection 1860-1900 ead 
 Date(s):  1860-1900 
 Abstract:  This is a collection of letters and accompanying envelopes (covers) primarily written during the Civil War, by Lieutenant Colonel Charles Whipple of the 19th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, to his daughter Rosa C. Whipple of Eau Claire Wisconsin. Whipple writes from his postings in Racine, Wisconsin and then from the areas around Hampton and Norfolk, Virginia where he was assigned to the Command of Fort Norfolk and later as captain of the “General Jessup” gunboat. A letter from 1866 indicates that Whipple became involved in a mining venture in Illinois after the War. By 1877, Whipple had moved on to Ehrenberg, Arizona Territory where he appears to have worked as a clerk at “F.E. Farrington and Co. Dealers in General Merchandise and Freight Forwarding”. The letters from Ehrenberg were often sent using Wells Fargo stationery. Whipple’s Civil War letters give a picture of life at Fort Norfolk, and a few of them show the racism inherent at the time, even amongst Union soldiers. Many of the letters indicate Whipple’s frustration with the War and his desire to return home. The letters from Ehrenberg mention a number of ventures he hopes will be profitable, although by this time he is approaching 60 years of age. Also included in the collection are a few letters from Whipple’s children, Rosa C. Whipple, Henry Clinton Whipple and Stella Whipple Hart. There are also related documents such as Whipple’s 1862 appointment certificate to the 19th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and his 1874 license to practice law issued by San Diego County.

Postmarks show post offices and in some cases towns which have disappeared, and demonstrate modes of postal delivery (such as railway post) which were key to the development of transportation throughout the western United States.
