May God in His
Mercy Spare our Lives
The Cairo Historical Society
is proud to announce the publication of a new book about one of
Cairo's Civil War soldiers. Entitled May God in His Mercy Spare
our Lives, the Civil War Letters and Diary of Eseck G. Wilber, 120th NYV,
this book captures the Civil War exploits of Eseck G. Wilber,
who was just 21 when he volunteered for the Union Army in August of
1862. He was full of youthful arrogance and pride which slowly eroded as
disease, hunger and death surrounded him. Eseck was at the battles of
Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg before he was captured
by the Rebels at James City, Va and sent to Libby Prison. Moved to
Pemberton, then Belle Isle and finally Andersonville, GA, Eseck saw
first hand the deprivations of his fellow soldiers. Eseck's 80 letters
and his diary tell the tale of his military exploits and his
incarceration by the South.
