Author Frank E. White, who lives in Lebanon, N.J., is writing a book about the 37th Massachusetts Infantry, particularly its role in the Battle of Sailor's Creek, Va., which occured April 6, 1865. During the battle, the regiment captured two Confederate regimental flags and took as prisoner Maj. Gen. George Washington Custis Lee, the eldest son of General Robert E. Lee. White says he is "...writing a book about their heroics. I'm hoping to be able to get in contact with families in the area that have sequestered items for the last 150 years from these men. I'm looking for letters, diaries, photographs and journals that the families might share. I'm not looking to purchase the items but to print excerpts from the artifacts with their permission,". Anyone who might be able to help is encouraged to contact Mr. White by calling him collect at (973) 214-3786 or by email at frank.e.white@accenture.com
