New Civil War Collection Includes Letters, Family Photos of Union Soldier
John Kelley Hough was a soldier in the 1st Michigan Regiment of Engineers and Mechanics during the Civil War. His collection -- recently acquired by the Bentley -- includes originals, transcripts, and images of letters written by Hough as a Union soldier, as well as the family photo seen here, taken in 1897.
We invite you to read the new Spring issue of Collections magazine. It's 24 pages chock full of stories about Michigan's past, grounded in the Collections at the Bentley Historical Library.
