The John W. Barriger papers, 1864-1867.

Contains the following type of materials: correspondence / letters. Contains information pertaining to the following war and time period: Civil War. Contains information pertaining to the following military units and organizations: Department of the Ohio; Department of the Platte; Army of the Ohio. General description of the collection: The John W. Barriger papers include three copybooks of letters sent by Barriger while on duty as commissary during and after the Civil War; at the headquarters Department of the Ohio, mostly stationed at Knoxville (January 28, 1864-January 21, 1865); at Louisville, Kentucky (January 1-July 20, 1866 and November 28, 1866 to February 1, 1867); and at the headquarters, Department of the Platte (February 18-May 28, 1867). During the 1864 operations, he remained at permanent department headquarters, but the following year he apparently accompanied the Army of the Ohio in the field. No letters are available for his service in North Carolina other than a summary statement of January 1, 1866, that he had performed such duty. Also missing, is the volume of his correspondence for the period July 21 - November 27, 1866. The gap in February, 1867, however, results not from a comparable lack, but from the fact that he wrote no letters while transferring from Louisville to Omaha. Most of his wartime corespondence concerns supply operations, but an occasional letter refers to military operations. Among the prominent Union generals to whom he wrote are : Stephen G. Burbridge, Jefferson C. Davis, Amos B. Eaton, Theophilus T. Garrard, Eli P. Long, Montgomery C. Meigs, Edward E. Potter, John M. Schofield, Philip H. Sheridan, Joseph P. Taylor, John W. Turner, and William D. Whipple.
