Abstract:
Electrician's Mate 2nd Class Leo Hartland Hardy of Aurora, NC, served aboard one of the US Navy ships operating off the north Russian coast 1918-1919. He was aboard the destroyer USS J. Fred Talbot. They were there in support of American, British, and other countries' troops that were sent there in support of the White Russians who were fighting against the Bolsheviks. The US had sent 4,500 men and over 500 had been killed between September 1918 and July 1919. Hardy wrote a series of letters, with interesting and sometimes shocking observations, about what happened there. These letters are now preserved in the Military Collection of the North Carolina State Archives.

Abstract:
During the advance of General William T. Sherman's army through North and South Carolina in the spring of 1865, it was opposed by a Confederate cavalry force of some 6,000 cavalrymen. The cavalry performed well in the field considering their need for more personnel, horses, and supplies. Brown recounts the movements of the cavalry, the discord between the two commanders--Generals Hampton and Wheeler, the fighting, and the success of their operations.
