1863 Civil War Letter To Capt. Luis F. Emilio 54th Regiment Mass.volunteers

1863 Civil War Letter Sent To Capt. Luis F. Emilio 54th Regiment Mass. Volunteers First African American Unit. Morris Island Charliston Har. S. C.This is a must read Civil War letter from one soldier to another. The soldier is writing to Luis F. Emilio of the 54th Mass African American Volunteers. Some of the subjects covered Battle of Gettysburg that he was inFort Wagner The colored soldiers and more. Gettysburg he tells of starting out with 290 men and ending up with 125 with allot more detail. Fort Wagner he writes to Luis that it must of been a desperate affair and must have proved the metal of your men. On the colored soldiers his comment is for every colored man in the army a white man is saved and they are willing and proud to render their service and I believe they will proved a terrible power against their enemies and ours. He tells Luis he is a very lucky man not to have been hit , he is home recovering from a gun shot wound to the leg. This letter is a wonderful first hand account of what was going on at the time. A wonderful addition to any Civil War collection.

Emilio was born on December 22, 1844 inSalem, Massachusetts, the son of a Spanish immigrant who made his living as a music instructor. Although the minimum age for service in the Union army was 18, in 1861 — at age 16 — Emilio gave his age as 18 and enlisted in Company F of the 23rd Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. He was noticeably brave and steadfast, and by September, 1862 he had been promoted to the rank of Sergeant.

Emilio was among the group of original officers of the 54th selected by Massachusetts War GovernorJohn Albion Andrew. He mustered in as a 2nd Lieutenant on March 30, 1863. Two weeks later, he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant, and on May 27, he was made Captain of Company E. Captain Emilio emerged from the ferocious assault onFort Wagneron July 18, 1863 as the regiment's acting commander, since all of the other ranking officers had been killed or wounded. He fought with the 54th for over three years of dangerous combat, mustering out of the Union army on March 29, 1865, still not yet 21 years old.

The54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantrywas aninfantryregimentthat saw extensive service in theUnion Armyduring theAmerican Civil War. The regiment was one of the first officialAfrican Americanunits in the United States during the Civil War. The1st South Carolina Volunteers (Union)recruited from freed slaves, was the firstUnion Armyregiment organized with African American soldiers in the Civil War, though many had fought in the American Revolution and the War of 1812 on both sides.
