(Click to Enlarge)
Envelope and letter from Tipton, Mi, during the Civil War to Hosea Bacon in Albion, NY. The letter is from a friend. The writer talks about his children, and mentions the War as follows: " Chauncey is in Arkansas and we had a letter from hin a few weeks ago. He was at Fort Smith. they would stay there all winter if the Rebel General Cooper would let them. He was not far from them with twelve thousand men and they only had five thousand. His three years was up last August but he inlisted again . There are months that we do not hear from him oas the mail cannot go through all the time. The last letter he wrote , he said the rebels captured their mail, the week before and they were left with out any news. Many lives at Medina James died in October with the consumption. Milton her oldest son inlisted a year ago last fall , in march he died with the measles . " The letter goes on about a boy that hd his arm taken off at the elbow by a picking machine...and other interesting information. Since the boy in Arkansas has been in the Army over 3 years I would guess this is 1864 or 1865.
