I SHOW 4 SCANS & 6 PHOTOS, GREAT 4 PAGE LETTER HEADLINED "CAMP ON WALNUT HILLS NEAR VICKSBURG, JUNE 27, 1863." SIGNED "FROM YOUR COUSIN, ORIN T ALFRED." SENT TO COUSIN KATE, FROM THE PAPERS OF CATHERINE C HOPKINS OF NORTHFIELD CT (LITCHFIELD CO), LETTER HAS SMALL PORTION AT TOP REMOVED FOR SOME REASON, LETTER MENTIONS "WE ARE STILL IN THE REAR OF VICKSBURG AND HOW LONG IT WILL BEFORE WE GIT THE TOWN IS MORE THAN I CAN TELL YOU BUT I THINK IT WILL NOT BE LONG FOR IF ALL REPORTS ARE TRUE THEY CANNOT HOLD OUT MUCH LONGER FOR THE DESERTERS FROM THERE SAY THAT THERE IS NOT OVER TEN OR TWELVE DAYS PROVISIONS THERE IF THAT IS THE CASE IT WILL NOT BE LONG BEFORE WE MARCH INTO THE .. GEN LOGAN BLEW UP A FORT THE OTHER NIGHT AND WE GRIND SOME LITTLE ADVANTAGE, IF WE GET THE FORT WE CAN GET INTO VICKSBURG FOR IT IS ...... THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO GET UP. I HOPE THAT WE WILL GET IT THE REPORT WAS YESTERDAY THAT OUR TROOPS HAD PART OF THE FORT BUT HOW TRUE IT IS IS MORE THAN I CAN TELL FOR THERE IS SO MANY REPORTS HERE THAT IT IS HARD TELLING WHEN YOU HAVE THE TRUTH. GEN JOHNSON IS ON THE BLACK RIVER WITH AN ARMY HOW MANY I DO NOT KNOW BUT HE CAN NOT GET OVER FOR IF HE DOES HE AND HIS WHOLE ARMY WILL BE TAKEN FOR THERE IS ONLY TWO ROADS HE CAN COME IN AND WE HAVE GOT TROOPS ENOUGH ON THEM TO KEEP HIM BACK OR TAKE HIS WHOLE ARMY BUT I DO NOT THINK THAT HE WILL TRY IT. YOU HEAR ABOUT THE COPPERHEAD IS THE SAME AS MINE IT WOULD TO ONE GOOD TO SEE THEM IN THE ARMY AND HAVE THEM IN ON THE FIELD AT BATTLE INSTEAD OF GOING AROUND MAKING LONGER SPEECHES, THEY HAD BETTER ENLIST AND TAKE THE FIELD WHERE THEY WILL DO SOME GOOD. I THINK THEN THERE WOULD BE SOME PROSPECTS AT THIS WAR COMING TO A CLOSE. I HOPE THAT IS THERE A DRAFT THAT IT WILL DRAW SOME OF THE RANKEST OF THE NORTHERN COPPERHEADS IN THE ARMY AND GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO DO BETTER THEN PROLONGING THIS WAR FOR THREE OR FOUR YEARS LONGER FOR I AM GETTING SICK OF IT ALTHO I HAVE ONLY 11 MONTHS MORE TO SERVCE AND THEN MY TIME IS OUT, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE END OF THIS WAR BEFORE MY TIME IS OUT. ..."
