World War 1 AEF artillery veteran Charles H. Stewart wrote some 86 letters home during his time in France which included combat action at St. Mihiel and the Meuse-Argonne in 1918.  Carefully preserved in a trunk, the letters were rediscovered and donated to the History Colorado Center in Denver in 2003.    Now Stewart’s letters will highlight a new exhibition titled “The American Soldier” which runs through September.  In addition to exhibiting Stewart’s letters, History Colorado Center will feature excerpts from them on Twitter.
