1864 Civil War Union Soldier’s Letter—writer Describes Battle Involvement For Sale
1864 Civil War Union Soldier’s
Letter—Writer Describes Battle Involvement . A letter written by a Union soldier with a letter
location of Fredericksburg Virginia, and letter is dated 05/16/1864. The
soldier describes a battle in which he was involved, and that he believed the
battle occurred on May 10 1864—from my research the Battle of Spotsylvania
Court House was fought May 8-21, 1864 near Fredericksburg, so what he describes
may have been this battle. He also talks about visiting the cemetery in
Fredericksburg where George Washington’s mother is buried and visiting her
tomb. Because the letter was written with a hard lead pencil, the writing is quite light but fully legible. Overall condition of letter is good with some expected age conditions—the
right and left sides of the horizontal fold crease have separated leaving only
the center fold crease holding the letter together. Estimated value: $25-$50. Would
make a very good addition to any collection.
Please Read All Terms Carefully before offerding
If there is a
shipping fee associated with this item, and if you purchase more than one item
which have shipping fees, I do combine fees to lower them as much as possible. I
do ship all items USPS First Class mail. So, if the item package weighs 1 ounce
or less, the USPS rate for this domestically is 46c, and there is no tracking
number available at the First Class rate for what USPS considers letter size
envelope. Tracking numbers are only available for what USPS considers First
Class package size envelopes, and the rate through 's deal with USPS is
$1.69 for the first 3 ounces. In order for me to continue shipping so many of
my items FREE, they have to be shipped at the 46c rate.
Cancellations & Descriptions
If the listed
item is a used stamp, all cancellations should be considered to be black
colored unless otherwise noted to be another color.
there are times where I might miss something in a description which is
noticeable in the picture or pictures, and then there are times when something
may not show in the picture or pictures but is pointed out in the description. So, it is important to definitely review
both the description and the picture, not just one or the other.
FDCs, covers and other certain items I am now including an estimated value of
the item which is based on research I conduct on as well as other online
sites that are retailing various items that fall somewhere within the realm of
philately/postal history I tend to sell. I am working to make these estimates
fairly realistic, and trying to do it on the conservative side. Please consider
them estimates and nothing more if you would.
Please Note: You are buying based on the
description above, which is my personal visual perception of the lot, and the
pictures posted with this listing. Please read the following carefully:
Although I make every effort to correctly describe or attribute items,
occasionally description errors do happen, and in such cases I always accept an
item back and will make full refund so long as I am notified of the situation
within fourteen days of lot receipt.
If you are
buyer who is seeking absolute perfection with the item you are looking to offer
on, please contact me before offerding detailing the imperfections you do not
want the item to have. I have a number of buyers who do just this, and it
helps me greatly in making sure they get what they want.
for any reason there is a problem with an item after the sale, please contact me immediately by email,
before doing anything else, so that I can work with you to fix the problem as
best possible. As nearly all my buyers will attest, I am very straight forward
with problems. Because I ship nearly all of my items USPS First Class mail (the
1 ounce 46c domestic rate for the most part), over past 1.5 years about one
item a month, sometimes two, will go missing in the USPS system. Sounds like it
is a lot, but I have shipped 300-500 items a month over the past 1.5 years, so
I guess my USPS shipping losses are to be somewhat expected. Also, if it is a screw up on my part (don't
like making mistakes but I do), I will admit to this and again do my best to
work it out with you.
At this time, I only
accept PayPal. Also note that if you decide to pay by PayPal eCheck, I will
ship your item only after your eCheck clears through PayPal. Payment would be appreciated within 5
business days of sale end. If you need more time than this, please email me
with expected payment date. A good example of this is: I have many buyers who
offer in a subsequent sale or sales I am holding, and they email to let me
know this so that all items they win can be combined into one shipment which
means payment will be delayed until the subsequent sale or sales end.
your interest and patronage.
