Hi Larry,

In general it seems it would be easier for the Union to reinforce armies, with their advantage in numbers!?

BTW I' m lately having trouble accessing your articles? Is it my tablet or are others having the same problem??

Regards,
MD

Hi Dick,

Glad to hear your still out there, and Larry you might check & repost the recent past articles that you got no responses to? Perhaps you need to see if you omitted something in the post, leading to us not being able to access them?

Just saying???

Try accessing these posts again. I tried a different website and there seems to be a problem. Sorry.

Larry,

Which newspaper is this article from ?

I note the reference to the Massachusetts contractors, and to the thousands of negroes who are housed and fed like princes while the poor Union soldiers freeze and perish .

Is this an anti New England/Abolitionist polemic ?

It would be infesting to see which region of the Union this emanated from.

Regards, Phil
