Henry Pool letters

Thanks to John Braden, noted expert on the 5th Michigan Infantry and a member of Company F, 3rd Michigan Infantry Reenactment Group, I have  copies of five letters written by Henry Pool (Company A) to the editor of the Jeffersonian Democrat, in Chardon, Ohio. (Henry had been born in Ohio and lived for a time in Geauga County.) Henry died of disease at the hospital at Savage Station, Virginia, on July 7, 1862. You can read Henry's updated biographical sketch right here.
