Up for offer is a very neat original July 17th, 1863 dated civil war 55th Alabama Confederate soldiers letter. The letter was written by George W. Paterson (on rolls as Patterson) of company "E" 55th Alabama Infantry. Paterson was captured at Champion Hill and is written to his parents from a hospital in Petersburg, Virginia. Paterson tells his parents that he was treated very poorly by the "YANKS" "I WAS TREATED BY THE BRUTES (YANKS) VERY BAD- LIKE A DOG NOT LIKE A WHITE MAN". Paterson also inquires about his brother Thomas who he last saw wounded and laying on the battlefield. Thomas Paterson also served in Company "E" of the 55th Alabama and was wounded in action and also captured at Champion Hill on 5/16/1863. The letter measures 7.5 x 6 inches. The letter exhibits heavy period wear including some soiling and age toning. The letter has several period folds and some very slight separation at a few of the folds. Great Confederate letter with excellent content. Guaranteed 100% authentic in every regard.
