Fascinating informative letter, We sometimes over look just how long & tough it was for Civil War soldiers to march distances for battles! And here I complain of a 12 hour drive from Michigan to Gettysburg! Also sadly touching about the execution of the 3 deserters!? (had to be tough on the firing squad? Again prices back then, amazing!)
Thanks for posting!
