Complaining about a lack of morals, in an autograph quarterly report, signed 10 March 1864 at Huntsville, Alabama, to his superior Col. J.B. McCown, commander of the 63rd Illinois Infantry.

4to. Three pages, approximately 350 words. In part: "Such is the want of feeling and interest upon the subject of morality and religion ... that God's name is blasphemed with impunity, and his Sabbath, law, and worship, are held in utter contempt. Can we expect Heaven's blessing on our cause, while we thus daringly misuse it?" Folded, but very good. Item #53760

Price: $225.00
