The letters in this collection were written during the Civil War by my great-great-grandfather Adj. William Beynon Phillips. On 30 July, 1864 William was captured at the Battle of the Crater and spent the final 8 months of the war as a prisoner at Columbia, S. C. Prior to his capture he participated in the monumental battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House, Cold Harbor, and Petersburg. These letters tell his story.
