Great Civil War Letter Snowball Fight 1000 Men For Sale
Vintage Civil War letter dated January 10, 1862. Sent from David Orne of the 2nd Mass Vol. in Gen Banks Div. to his brother and sister. Great description of a huge snowball fight. "I heard the boys sing out the left of the rigment and rit had curmence of snoball gam the rite and left __ met in the center before the curnells hose and then ___ in the offerrsers came out with one on each side encurriging ther men on and a better time I never had. Only think of a 1000 men all sno balling at ounce in one game. We gav and tuck till the snow was on on our side then tha giv usfull and we then gam u till we hav sum more snow - suck a noise I never heard in our rigment and the outher rigment round us that we had mustered for such a noise ar not comon in the 2d regment". Orne's writing isn't the best English and I have tried to read it as best I could. He also describes seeing his Uncle George Orne fairly often who was quite a soldier in the War.
