1862 Civil War Letter Wash D.c. Camp Tom Casey Talks About Deserters And Housing

Here is a neat Civil War letter from an unknown soldier to his brother Joseph.He is staioned in Washington D.C at Camp Tom Casey, letter written on Dec 25th 1862,Two interested items in letter, one discussing the new barracks that they have moved into and of deserters at the camp.The following is written "now in our barracks and are well settled, the barracks and officers quarters make quite a village. I belive there are 62 buildings ______ they are built of logs, the walls are four feet high with quite a steep pitch to the roof which is boarded clap board fashion. There are two tiers of bunks on each side but we have no beds yet but the quatermaster told me yesterday we should probably draw them the first of January""There were three deserters brought in the other day who ran away while we were in camp_____________ They are made to walk in front of the guard house 4 hours each day with a piece of ___board on their backs marked Deserter. I believe it is to be continued 30 days and they are to lose 4 months wages- a very light punishment by the way, but if they had belonged to the regular Army it would have been death that day, but volinteers are not so strict with."I would guess this to be around the 1860's(Dated 1862)Condition is poor to fair, see noted conditions above, if any.Approx dimensions are 7 1/2 by 9 3/48
