This letter was written by my great great grandfather less then 30 days before he was killed at the Battle of South Mountain in Maryland, in September, 1862.  He was in Company O of Phillip's Georgia Legion. He would have fought the Second Battle of Bull Run (Manassas) just before the battle of South Mountain.
