Re: Southern Occupied Homefront
Don't have written documentation of the process, but I have one example from Kentucky (I'm sure the Confederate soldiers from there considered it the "occupied South") - here is a letter from a soldier in the 4th Kentucky Infantry (CS), passed by truce through the mail exchange at Old Point Comfort, VA. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~or...lindsayltr.htm
From the mention of other letters that Lindsay had sent to and received from Kentucky, evidently the mail-through-truce system worked. I'd like to know more about the process, too.
