Addy served as a private in the 41st Georgia Infantry and trained at Camp McDonald in Cobb County, Georgia. He died 5 May 1862 in Lauderdale Springs, Mississippi.
This collection contains a letter from Ervin E. Addy to his wife and children on 28 March 1862 while he was stationed at Camp McDonald in Cobb County, Georgia.
