WILLIAM L. RILEY PAPERS Materials: 0.25 linear feet Subjects: Riley, William L.; United States -- History -- Civil War, 1861-1865 -- Personal narratives, Union; United States -- History -- Civil War, 1861-1865 -- Prisoners and prisons »The William L. Riley papers contain documents and materials relating to his service as a Union soldier during the Civil War. Captain Riley was captured by the Confederates. An account of his capture, escape and return to his unit is contained in the collection. Two diaries dating from 1864 and 1866 provide insight into routine of military life. His pension application and pension record are also included in the collection. Saw this information listed at the Wichita State University (Wichita, KS) archives and thought someone might be interested. I am not a Riley researcher.
