Private Willie Green served in Co. G, 2nd USSS United States
Sharpshooters -- the famous Berdan's Sharpshooters.Some of the content:
Nov. 20th, 1862Dear Mother,You will see by the date of my letter that I am in Haverhill. I arrived
here yesterday noon, came here to Aunt Helen's and found her full of
grief on account of the loss of her husband. When I first saw her she
burst out crying and she could hardly speak for some time and she
appears all the time just as though she had rather die than live. She
had a cry last night and I will tell you how she came to it.She went down town last night and when she came home she found the man
that lives up stairs playing and singing on a banjo. He was singing a
nigger song and could be heard clear into the St. and Uncle was burryed
only last Friday (he did not get here until Thursday).Now, what should you think of having such a family over your head? I
told Aunt Helen I would have them move right out if they ever done it
again.I will write again as soon as I get to Washington or R.I. Don't you
worry in regard to me for I shall try my best to get discharged. I shall
leave here tomorrow.Yours truly,
Wm B Greene
