Civil War Soldier Letter William W. Wilbur 172nd Pa 2nd Lt Yorktown Va 5/25,1862

Up for sale

Civil War soldier letter, William W. Wilbur, 2nd Lt. 172nd Pa infantry, nearly 7 pages with the first 4 being on patriotic stationery (small embossing of waving flag-not too clear, lined with red/blue border, Yorktown, Va May 25, 1862, comes with cover franked #65, partial Old Point Comfort, VA, not in great shape but better than no cover, addressed to his parents Warren PA. We get news regularly, news flash that Vicksburg is ours, our forces seem to annoy the enemy at West Point very much, mail boat was fired upon but did not do much damage, the gun boats went up and shelled them and burned all the houses in the vicinity, Kilpatrick made a raid into Glocester County with great success, we are now well prepared to make these raids, it is rumored that we will get paid, talks of nine month regiment, our Lt. A Pentz has a pottery at Clearfield where he makes stoneware from a fruit jar to a churn, he talks is extraordinary how he plans to set himself up in business making pottery like Pentz, a very profitable business it seems. Quite fascinating detail that is very different from what you see in soldier letters. Quite good indeed!
