U.S. Army officer, serving as corporal in the 144th Infantry Regiment, New York Volunteers. Bradley sent these letters to an address in Meredith, N.Y., although he had joined a company raised in nearby Franklin, N.Y., by Col. Samuel F. Miller, who used anti-secession meetings for recruitment. Following his enlistment enlisted on 29 Aug. 1862, the U.S. Army sent Bradley and his fellow recruits to South Carolina's sea islands from 1863 to 1865.
