In June 1861, William T. Sherman Writes Secretary of War Simon Cameron, Seeking to Form His First Regiment, Stating that It Ought to Consist of “mountain and prairie men, accustomed to all sorts of camp life” Early war letters of Sherman are incredible rarities; public sale records show only 4 letters from Sherman in 1861 having reached that market, and none relating to forming his regiment
