1862 Civil War Letter W/ Fire Zuoave Letterhead, Athens Alabama Great Content For Sale

1862 Civil War Letter W/ Fire Zuoave Letterhead, Athens Alabama Great Content

For sale is an interesting letter written by Union soldier, A. Meredith of the 31st Regt. Indiana Infantry. This letter comes from a group of Meredith family letters which also includes Civil War letters from a Jacob Meredith and Taylor Meredith. I found a link online that lists these two as brothers along with one Ananais Meredith. There was an Ananais Meredith in the 31st Indiana, so I believe this is very likely by him. If so, it is quite extraordinary that three members of the same family enlisted for the Union. Letter, in addition to its rather spectacular letterhead of the "School of the Fire Zuoave", has interesting content which reads "Excuse all mistakes and bad spellin. Camp at Athens Aliba (?) July the 8th 1862 Dear Uncil with the greatest of pleasure seat myself to rite you a few lines to let you know that I am well and to ancer your kind letter which (?) to hand the other day it found me in my spirits well satisfied with my posision in the army but I would like to here of (?) but the (?) at the present I hav no news to rite at the time for it would be imposible to rite the travels since the evacuation of Garreath (?) we hav traveled all over this god fur saken country it is a wilderness of Negrose and that is all they (?) fur but I am a (fired/tired?) that the Negrose is keepin this on now as mutch as I can lern and I think that it will wind up with the Negrose free and that is a gon to keep me us out the 3 yers well uncil I think this noth a merican army is nothin but a (?)..." He goes on to discuss the food he is eating and to send his greetings to family members."
