Civil War letters

Four letters written by Confederate generals Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart, Stonewall Jackson, and Joseph E. Johnston have been donated to the University Library Special Collections Department.

The letters -- three written during the Civil War and one after -- are the gift of U.Va. alumnus Robert M. Hughes and his wife, Jean. Hughes is a relative of the late Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, who wrote one of the donated letters to Hughes' grandfather, Robert M. Hughes Sr., the great grand nephew of Johnston.
