Original Letter from Battery No. 35, Petersburg
I have a friend who purchased an old book from a fleemarket that contain an original letter from the Civil War. She has ask for my assistance (and now I am asking for yours) to find out if possible, more information about the unit and then hopefully about this person who was assigned to this battery. I am enclosing the letter in a WORD document. This way you can save the letter and use it for research. Any help, suggestions or questions will be appreciated and answered if possible. The book and all of it's entries seem to originate from Aberdeen, Mississippi and the Aberdeen Female College, June 1860 by Miss Ellen Howard, or Hommond ?
