8 Oct 1864 Confederate Battle Letter Written By Captain Alfred H Foster

Near Richmond

Oct 8th, 1864


Dear Father & Mother,


I will write you a few lines to relieve any anxiety you may feel upon hearing ----again engaged on yesterday with the enemy. Our brigade was heavily engaged and suffered considerably. The loss on our regiment was about 90 men. Sgt Wm. Richardson was very severely wounded in the side also a flesh wound in the arm and foot. Capt. Geo. Steading was wounded and left with the enemy. I did not see him as he was with the colors of the regiment but was told that he was shot in the thigh, I think, cutting the femoral artery and I fear he is dead before this. H A Green was also left with the enemy.

He was shot through the arm and into the body and I fear he is mortally wounded. --- Moore was shot through the hand loosing a portion of 1 finger. N N Brown, J S Nicholls. Lipsey and Jno. Settle were struck and bruised but they are all came back to the company except Brown and he will be back today. It was a very bad place he drove through---breast works for 2 miles but found them strongly intrenched and in strong force in the last position that he charged and had to retire leaving our dead and wounded on the field. Capt. Quattlebaum was killed at my side falling on me. John Durant and Abraham Walker of Company K more dangerously wounded. Through the mercies of Providence I again escaped unhurt. With my best respects to all friends and love to all the family, I remain your son,

Alfred H Foster
