Soldier 69th Reg.” along top and signed by Major Booker at bottom left

VERY FINE. ONLY THREE SOLDIERS’ LETTERS FROM THE AROOSTOOK WAR ARE RECORDED, TWO OF WHICH ARE IN THE DUBOIS” COLLECTION.

The Aroostook War (1838-39), otherwise known as the Pork and Beans War, was a territorial border dispute between the United States and Great Britain. The 1783 Treaty of Paris did not set clear lines between New Brunswick and Maine, an area rich in timber. Local militias and British soldiers were called to the engagement, but before any blood was shed, a peaceful compromise was found and the 1842 Webster-Ashburton Treaty was signed.

This letter provides fascinating details of the dispute. The letter discusses the writer’s travels from Cork to Halifax and Woodstock, and having travelled on sleighs on the ice on a large river...snow 20 to 30 feet deep...our regiment is 600 strong.” He mentions when we got to Woodstock we expected to go into action every day but the rebels was too great...to make an attack...we fired the guns into the woods.” He also mentions an agreement between Sir John Harvey and the Yankee General” settling the affair.
