Civil War 22nd Wis Letter Slavery Shall Be Remembered Only As A Great Evil

Civil War 22nd WIS cover & letter written by EZRA BUTTON Ex. Libby Prisoner camped at Murfreesboro, Tennessee Sept. 16th, 1863! Letter mentions,

"...We are surrounded on all sides by the low dark walls...parapets of the many forts and from every embrasure can be seen peering the black mouthed instruments of death ready to belch forth their storm of destruction at a moments notice. All shows but to plainly that was stern bloody war rages in our once happy country...When the demons of war shall have been driven from our shores and when slavery shall be remembered only as a great evil that did once exist but which can never again find a resting place neath the shadow of the stripes and stars...Rosecrans and Burnside after driving the rebels from this state are now in full pursuit of Bragg and it is reported that heavy fighting is now being done in Northern Georgia deserters from Bragg are coming in every day. Three came in this A.M. and gave themselves up. They report Bragg's Army much demoralized and that his men are deserting by the thousand... E.W. Button"

Worthy of more research!
