Call Number: WVM Mss 1386
Abstract: Correspondence, military papers, and photographs pertaining to Augustus and James Patchin, father and son from Wyocena, Wisconsin who served with Wisconsin regiments during the Civil War. Augustus enlisted in 1861 with Company D, 10th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment and served until being wounded and captured at the Battle of Chickamauga (Georgia) in 1863. He spent several months as a prisoner of war at Libby Prison (Virginia) before being released and mustered out of service in December 1864. Augustus's son, James, first enlisted with Company B, 40th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment and then reenlisted with Company I, 47th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment. Most of the correspondence is letters written by Augustus and James home to their family while they were serving in the war. The letters from Augustus generally discuss military life, his thoughts on military service, the health of the men of his company, and descriptions of southern landscape. He frequently asks for letters and supplies from home, mentions his desire to return home from the war soon, and continues to dictate how to perform daily tasks on the farm. Augustus mentions participating in the Battle of Perryville (Kentucky) and the Battle of Stones River (Tennessee) in two letters (October 12 and 16, 1862 and January 7, 1863), and mentions the putrid smell still at the battlefield of Stones River nearly two months later. The letters also include his thoughts on Copperheads, his disgust over the management of the Army, and his feeling that he is doing his duty by serving in the war. Letters written by Augustus from Libby Prison are significantly shorter in length, with one letter stating he was only allowed to write six lines (February 7, 1864). They mention that he is healing from his wound, ask for supplies to be sent, and that he hopes to be released soon as part of a prisoner exchange. Correspondence written by James includes comments about drill and training, casualties among his fellow soldiers, and his thoughts on military life. One letter (April 17, 1865) describes how two soldiers from Illinois were court marshaled for celebrating the death of Lincoln. Another letter (July 8, 1865) mentions that he felt the Black residents of Tennessee were more intelligent and harder workers than the white residents, and that "a man that curses the Negro does not know as much as he ought to about things in general." Letters written to Augustus, before James enlisted, center around the health of the family, ask for farming advice, and mention his own desire to serve in the war. The collection also includes letters written to Augustus from his wife, Margaret, and from his niece, Mary McDougall. Letters from Margaret discuss life on the farm in Augustus's absence and the general health of the family. She frequently states that she longs for his return, and writes about the stress placed on her from running the farm and caring for the children. One letter (April 16, 1863) mentions that she was upset at being called a war widow by neighbors and hopes that he will return soon. Letters from Mary update Augustus on the family, neighbors, and wish him a safe return home soon. She also frequently mentions the need for the war to end so the soldiers can arrest the Copperheads in Wisconsin. Other correspondence include a few letters written by other relatives, neighbors, and fellow soldiers. One interesting letter was written to James from his cousin Clarence Burnett. The letter states that Burnett witnessed Confederate prisoners being transported to Camp Randall in Madison, Wisconsin. He also mentions seeing three cars of wounded soldiers returning to Wisconsin after the Battle of Shiloh, and a cannon captured by the 14th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment during the same battle. Additional manuscripts include a pass from performing duty issued to James, pay vouchers issued to Margaret from the Volunteer Aid Fund, and a religious talisman carried by Augustus. Photographs include two copy prints of images of Augustus. One image is of him standing in full uniform and the other was taken sometime after his service. Transcriptions of the letters were done by Wisconsin Veterans Museum staff and have been included in the collection.

Abstract: Papers and still images pertaining to the service of Paul Winner, a Madison, Wisconsin veteran who served as a pursuit pilot with the 213th Aero Squadron, 3rd Army of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I. Winner was a graduate student at Harvard University when he enlisted in the Army in 1917 to be trained as a pilot. After undergoing basic training he was sent to help construct the Third Aviation Instruction Center at Issoudun, France. Winner underwent flight training at Tours, France, but did not complete his training until after the end of the war. He served as part of the peacekeeping force in France until June, 1919. The collection documents his time serving in the Army through manuscript material and still images. The papers consist of letters, a diary, journal, flight log, service records, biographical information, newspaper articles, ephemeral souvenir items and identification cards, loose scrapbook pages, and a personal bible. The letters are mainly written by Winner to his parents and siblings during his time overseas in France. In the letters, Winner describes his journey over to England and France, his typical daily duties while stationed at Issoudun, his thoughts on the war, and interacting with French civilians. Most of the letters reassure his family that he is doing fine and getting plenty of rest and food. The letters also express concern for his family, with Winner regularly instructing his brother to stay in college rather than enlist in the Army. In a letter dated December 9th, 1917, he tells his brother to continue his study of medicine because that is the “best thing he could do for his country.” Also included with the letters are two written by Jeanne Dennett (Winner's future wife) to Winner's sister, Mae. In the letters, Jeanne describes the letters Winner wrote to her and expresses concern for his safety. Winner's diary, written on loose sheets of paper, provides entries that begin with his journey to Europe and end in March, 1918. He describes his arrival at Issoudun, helping to construct the airfield and barracks, and mentions the hardships of military life. Winner goes into detail about the cold temperatures, getting little to no food, serving on guard duty, having to deal with ankle-deep mud around the entire airbase, and witnessing airmen dying from airplane crashes and exposure to the elements. He mentions the low morale among the men due to the fact they were not being trained as pilots. Winner also describes how he witnessed Eddie Rickenbacker crashing a plane during a landing, and how Quentin Roosevelt served as his commanding officer for a time. The diary also briefly describes his first flight after he began training as a pilot. In an entry dated March 22, 1918, Winner describes in great detail his first flying experience and his enjoyment of actually being able to fly. The diary abruptly ends after Winner received an actual diary from his sister at the end of March. This diary is not in the collection. The collection also includes a notebook journal, which Winner kept notes from his training. An interesting entry in the journal includes a note about the number of French women infected with venereal disease. The flight log provides additional details into the training Winner received as a pilot and records flight hours, first solo flight, and descriptions of aerial maneuvers. His service records include special orders and mention him being promoted from private to 1st lieutenant when he began training as a pilot. The loose scrapbook pages contain additional service records, along with additional photographs of Winner posing in flight gear. The newspaper articles are clippings pertaining to U. S. airmen, presumably collected by Winner's mother while he was in France, and includes an interesting article about airmen serving at Issoudun from 1917. Still images include a large collection of photographs and postcards documenting Winner's service during the war and various cities he visited as a tourist. Most of the wartime photographs are labeled and include a lengthy description for context. The majority of photographs are of Winner and fellow airmen relaxing around bases and touring Europe after the war. An interesting group of images include those taken at Issoudun that show it in various stages of its construction. Other images consist of shots of destruction along the front line and within French towns, a funeral for two American pilots, German prisoners posing at the prison camp at Issoudun, and images of airplanes used during the war. After the war, Winner remained as part of the peacekeeping force and toured various cities across Europe. There is a large collection of tourist photographs that show Winner and other soldiers in European cities such as Paris, Marseilles, and Rome. The postcards include those collected by Winner while traveling across Europe after the war.

Personal military records provide details about his service, including flight records, orders, passes, and time and sequence cards. Written requests to transfer into the United States Army Air Force and a separation record show how his Canadian service ended. Several letters from fellow R.C.A.F. pilots provide news of mutual acquaintances and describe the conditions at various bases while scattered correspondence from his father describe the activities of the local Rotary Club. Newspaper clippings include descriptions Hunter's service, his visit home circa 1943, and several speaking engagements in the Madison area. Documents from the U.S. military show his desire to transfer from the R.C.A.F. two years before it happened. A permit from his local draft board to depart the United States in 1941 is a unique and interesting document since Hunter used the permit to enlist in the Canadian military. The majority of the materials provide details about his service such as pay records, certificates of appointment and service, military property clearance forms, and orders. Individual flight records and post-flying regulation questionnaires give a little detail about his role as a pilot toward the end of World War II. Hunter also collected samples of blank stationary used by military forces.
