Second Manassas Letter, Judson L. Tandy, 1st Rhode Island Cavalry, With Sketches

Judson L. Tandy, Private Troop "L" 1st Rhode Island Cavalry, war-date letter written to his Aunt and Uncle, 4 pages with a hand-drawn sketch of Union and Confederate positions during a part of the Second Manassas campaign with the Rhode Island cavalry front and center, 8 x 5, August 1862 (no day), in full:

"I take this opportunity to write a line or two to let you know that I am well and hope that these few lines will reach you the same. I have not heard from you since I came out here so I thought that I would write and let you know that I would like to have you write and let me know whether you are well or not and let me know how things are looking how does those potatoes look and which turns out the best how does your hay come in. haying is rather slim out here and all other crops does two and the army is not very careful with the crops they would as soon go through a field of wheat as a pasture.

I suppose that you would like to know whether I have been in any fight or not if I was at home now I could tell you what the sight of a battle is. I will venture to say that it is the hardest sight that I ever saw in my life! I saw men with their legs and arms shot off and saw those that was tore all to pieces with the shell we stood two howers within 30 rods of the enemy and their was a continued roar of infantry but happily they fired above our heads so that their was but five killed and but a few wounded, my right hand man was wounded in the back. I do not know but that he is mortaly the surgeon probed the wound and it was very deep. That was all that was wounded in Troop L. I cannot write much more this time but write to me as soon as you get this, love to all. From J.L. Tandy to P. & M. Tandy

Judson L. Tandy Troop L 1st Regt. R.I. Cav. Washington D.C."
