From the Browse Letters option at SoldierStudies.org:

Several observations on the data, Union correspondences in the database far exceed Confederate; which is not unusual, but we hope to get more. New York leads all states whether Union or Confederate with 167. The top three are all Union:

New York: 167
Pennsylvania: 145
Massachusetts: 136

The data represents the declared state (including: Territory, Regular Army, US Colored ,ect.), unit, and allegiance by the soldier in their letter. If there are no letters for a state it will not appear. All data as of 2 pm, 2.15.13
