Charles Carleton Coffin

Charles Carleton Coffin (July 26, 1823 – March 2, 1896) was an American journalist, American Civil War correspondent, author and politician.

Coffin was one of the best-known newspaper correspondents of the American Civil War. He has been called "the Ernie Pyle of his era," and a biographer, W.E. Griffis, referred to him as "a soldier of the pen and knight of the truth." Yet he remains little known to the present-day generation.
