1865 Civil War Letter Arrest Joe Brown Georgia w/his Slave Lookout Mtn
This is a great 4 page Civil War letter from a soldier named Davis.It is incomplete but has good content as they are stationed nearLookout Mountain.It is handwritten and in good condition.It says in part:There was some 2 or 3 more forts around the opposite hills but I was too tired to walk…there is one barracks there 2 stories high, but most of the soldiers dwell in tents.The Niggers has a nice camp, it stands on the Brow of an hill, some mad of slabs and some of logs…they have a bird on a pole about 10 feet high and the mountains is full of them and when the niggers plays and cuts up a bird is not a bit scared.The next thing in view of any note is the Missionary Ridge it is across the Tennessee River…I went to Lookout Mountain, that spot will never be forgotten by many a wife and mother, it was on that mountain that Joe Hooker had a desperate fight with the Rebs…A crowd gathered around a man, after enquiring I found it was Rebel Governor Brown of George who was arrested by General Willson and on his way to Washington City, he is a tall slender man and of a very pleasant countenance but rather poorly clothed…He had his nigger and his horse along but not his wife…
