23 Sep 1863 Vicksburg, Mississippi Soldier's Letter - General Us Grant Injured

Vicksburg, Miss.

Sept 23, 1863



Dear Sister,


It is with pleasure that I acknowledge the receipt of you kind favor of the 3rd Sept. I am quite well and you may imagine that I am enjoying myself as well as one can in the midst of war. Nothing of local importance has transpired since I wrote you last though I have some bad news to tell. General Grant was thrown from his horse in New Orleans a short time ago and nearly killed him. He arrived at this place last Friday on the Steamer Ohio Belle and was carried off on stretcher by four Captains of his staff. It was very solemn occasion for it almost made the tears trickle down the brown faced soldiers when they say this brave Commander so badly injured. There is not a soldier in this army when he sees General Grant pass but what will congratulate him by taking off his hat as saluting him in some way.

Well Vickie, we are having a good old time now and living like Nabols. We have all the sweet potatoes we can stuff and grape pies, muscadine pie & oh every kind of pies. The boys a say they will starve to death when they go home. They get so much better living from Uncle Sam. The commissary furnishes us with all the sugar, rice, molasses, tea, coffee, pork, fresh corn beef, harmony, hams, sow belly, etc. All this costs us nothing and we can buy tomatoes, cabbage, onions very cheap. So you see we can live clear up on the top shelf as long as we stay in Vicksburg but when we move then we will have to take up with soldier’s fare which is mostly spoiled sow belly & hard tack.

You may look for me about the first of November and not before. Write often and give my love to all the (folks) and a cordial portion to your own dear self and ever remember your affectionate brother,

Isaac Bishop
