Dated 31 July 1864, from Fort Kearney (Washington DC) The letter is a correspondence addressed to his Wife (Mary Tanner). A direct reference is made to then Col William Henry Sewards horse being wounded and his subsequent injury when his horse fell on him and broke his leg at the Battle of Monocacy just three weeks earlier.
A small glimpse into a Soldiers life during this period of time in our history. The staining on the letter itself is actually sugar (from a sugar pack spilt in his napsack onto the paper earlier on a march) he was carrying while in the field.Also mentioned in this letter home to his loved one.
