The Shibley family moved from Fayetteville to near Van Buren in 1860 just as the clouds of rebellion were descending. The two Shibley boys enlisted in Company G, 22nd Regiment, Arkansas Infantry, C.S.A. in June 1862. From then until Lee surrendered the brothers wrote letters to their “Dear Parents”. These treasures tell a tale of adventure, hardship, and anguish, but always abiding faith. There is also background and history of the Shibley Family. This is truly a masterpiece of capturing the travail of the Civil War as told by these two remarkable young men.
