Excellent 2nd New Hampshire letter-written the same day as the 1st Bull Run!
This regiment would play an active role at Bull Run on the same day as this was written. I wonder if any of those listed on the letter knew about the forth coming battle that afternoon?
Excellent "United States Capitol" letterhead. Written in period ink, and has pencil notations as well.
In fine condition, minor fold splits near edges.
$95.00 plus shipping
The regiment arrived in Washington on the afternoon of the
23d, and was brigaded with the First and Second Rhode Island
and the Seventy-first New York, the brigade commander being
Col. Ambrose E. Burnside. This constituted the Second Brigade
of Hunter's division, and opened the fight at the first Bull
Run battle, July 21. Colonel Marston was severely wounded
here, and the regiment's loss was reported as 7 killed, 56
wounded, 46 missing.
