Federal soldier's letter written by Dudley c. Mumford of the Mass 19th Infantry, 2pp., written to his aunt, dateline Camp near Yorktown, April 22 '62, VG. In part, "Yesterday our brigade was out in support to our batteries which are erected in front of a line of Rebel fortifications, running directly across our path on the road to Yorktown. ... You have no idea what fortifications they have thrown up, but McClellan says he will either take it, or make the heavens roar with artillery. Judging from the amount he had, he will make something roar anyway. ... I have been under fire. There is nothing so bad about having shells bursting around you ... If one does not happen to hit a person, they sound sharp enough & if anything happens to be in its way, it has to give way. ... Affect nephew, Dud". Come with a clipping of Dudley's death and the original cover for this letter.
