Letters from Pvt. William Perkins of Mercer County, Kentucky to his sweetheart, Mary Elizabeth Foster. This is an excerpt. The full document is for sale by the Harrodsburg Historical Society.
For many years, each new member of the Society was required to submit a paper based on original research. Some members wrote multiple papers over the years. These papers are an invaluable source of history about Harrodsburg and Mercer County. We are compiling and transcribing these papers to make them more widely available and more easily found. The documents attached are an author index and a keyword index to the papers transcribed up to June 2021. There are about 270 papers in all, and we aim to get them all prepared before too long. Contact the Society if you need a copy of one of these papers. There may be a small processing fee.
