Scope and Contents of the Materials

Correspondence, military records, and financial and legal material document the life of Civil War veteran Benjamin L. Wiley. The Correspondence Series consists mainly of family letters to Ben or his wife, Emily Davie Wiley, with the bulk of the letters during the years 1853 to 1878. Of note are letters from Emily to Ben while he was serving in the Civil War. Also included in the Correspondence Series are family letters (1817-1822) to Winstead Davie (Ben Wiley's father-in-law) and general business letters to Ben Wiley, who was in business in Union County before becoming a successful farmer in Jackson County. Wiley was also active in Republican party politics (he ran for state office twice), and the series contains some political letters. Military Records contains some Mexican War items, but the bulk of material is from the Civil War period, tracing Wiley's movements in and out of the service from 1861 to 1865, including special orders, letters, and receipts.

Biographical Note

Ben Ladd Wiley was born in Smithfield, Ohio on March 25, 1821. In 1845 Wiley moved to Vienna, Illinois to be with his brother John where he taught school and worked as a carpenter. In 1847  Wiley enlisted in United States Army to fight in Mexico and was enlisted until 1848 when he left the service to return to Vianna. In 1849 Wiley settled in Jonesboro, Union County and worked for Winstead Davie as a clerk, worked as a carpenter, and at the Jonesboro Gazette. In 1850 he married Emily Davie, and three years later became a traveling salesman for the Davie's family. A year after that Wiley set up a real estate business with Colonel Lewis T. Ashley in Anna and began a partnership with Paul Frick, "Wiley & Frick", and sold hardware, argricultural implements, tools, etc. In 1856 Wiley ran and lost for a congressional seat on the Republican ticket, and went on to work for Lincoln in the senate election. In 1859 Wiley became a lawyer in Illinois and moved his family to a farm in Makanda and two years later he was appointed Lieutenant Colonel in the fifth Illinois Calvary Regiment, but resigned citing ill health and family issues in 1862. A year later he was able to return to his post, being discharged in 1865. After his military service, Wiley was appointed to the board to select a site for an insane asylum in Union County. In 1876 he ran again for congress, and was again defeated. He died in 1890.

Series 1: Personal, 1817-1878Add to your cart.

The Correspondence Series consists mainly of family letters to Ben or his wife, Emily Davie Wiley, with the bulk of the letters to Emily during the years 1853 to 1878.  There are letters from Emily to Ben while he was serving in the Civil War, but there are no letters from Ben to Emily.  Also conspicuous by their absence, are diaries or journals during the period of the Civil War.  (Wiley did maintain detailed records of his service in the Mexican War [see VFM-977]; in 1864 he was required to reconstruct the dates and details of his military record for a Special Court and a journal or diary must have been used to do so.)

Also included in the Correspondence Series are family letters (1817-1822) to Winstead Davie (Ben Wiley's father-in-law)  Wiley was also active in Republican Party politics (he ran for state office twice), and the series contains some political letters.

The Military Records Series contains some Mexican War items, but the bulk of material is from the Civil War period, tracing Wiley's movements in and out of the service from 1861 to 1865, including special orders, letters and receipts.  The reading of material in this series gives an insight into the cumbersome bureaucracy of the War Department in the 1860's.  The western campaign was far removed from Washington and papers and people often were lost, delayed, or unaccounted for.
