Civil War Code Ciphertext

Here are three variations of the message I broke in my blog post about the recently-unrolled Civil War Code. First, the ciphertext as best I could transcribe from a high-resolution photograph:

SEAN WIEUIIUZH DTG CNP LBNXGK OZ BJQB FEQT XZBW JJOA
TK FHR TPZWK PBW RYSQ VOWPZXQQ OEPH EK WASFKIPW PLVO
JKZ HMN NVAEUD XYF DWRJ BOYPA SF MLV FYYRDE LVPL
MFYSIU XY FQEO NPK M OBPC FYXJFHOHT AS ETOV B OCAJOSVQU
M ZTZV TPIY DAW FQTI WTTJ J DQGOAIA FLWHTXTI QMTR
SEA LVLFLXFO

Now, that same text cleaned up, once I’d recovered the key and corrected all the encoding, transcription, and handwriting interpretation errors:

SEAN WIEUIIUZH DTG CNP LBHXGK OZ BJQB FEQT XZBW JJOY
TK FHR TPZWK PVU RYSQ VOUPZXGG OEPH CK UASFKIPW PLVO
JIZ HMN NVAEUD XYF DURJ BOVPA SF MLV FYYRDE LVPL
MFYSIN XY FQEO NPK M OBPC FYXJFHOHT AS ETOV B OCAJDSVQU
M ZTZV TPHY DAU FQTI UTTJ J DOGOAIA FLWHTXTI QLTR

And, finally, for an added challenge, the clean ciphertext with word breaks removed:
