||Joseph Gordon (1914-1942) and Leo Gordon (1915-1938), brothers raised in Brooklyn,
New York, joined the International Brigades in Spain in 1936 and 1937, respectively.
Leo was killed in action. Joe later joined the Merchant Marines and was killed when
his ship was torpedoed in the North Atlantic. The collection is primarily comprised
of letters from Leo and Joe during their time in Spain, as well as letters written
while they were traveling and working odd jobs around the U.S. in the early 1930s.
