Union civilian letter. Dateline Coldwater, Mich. Dec.16, 1861. 4pp. 5x8” Patriotic letterhead “The Constitution for Ever – Rebellion must be Put Down” with original postal envelope to Capt. D.C. Co.B 14th Illinois Regt. Vols. Tipton, Missouri. Good letter from a cousin Alice who bemoans the hardships imposed upon the “Western Army”. Talks about how the Rebel Army has escaped in Missouri, concluding the Union suffers from bad Generalship. Because of this, she sees a long, drawn out Civil War: “but I know not what I can do for the glorious cause but stay at home + be a good girl. There is not even a soldier’s aid soc(iety) in Coldwater, in which we can knit and show out our patriotism.” She talks of the desolateness of Coldwater, and that several companies are encamped there. 2 Pieces in Fine condition.
