This is a massive volume of letters, published by the Missouri Historical Society, by James Love, an Irish immigrant who volunteered to fight for the Union as soon as hostilities broke out. Love was born in County Antrim, in what is now Northern Ireland. He moved to the States, then spend a couple of years in Australia, before settling in St. Louis, Missouri. He fell in love with Eliza "Molly" Wilson, also from Antrim, but they didn't in meet until coming to the US.
