C. W. Hale Letter, circa 1864 July 28

 Item — Box: 4273.002, Folder: 013

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of one letter from Ward to his father, dated July 28 and written at Ft. Ward. The plastic cover in which the letter was housed on arrival identifies Ward as a member of the 166th Regiment, Ohio Volunteers, a unit that was stationed at Ft. Ward from May to September 1864. The unit also took part in defending the city from Confederate General Jubal Early's raid of July 11-12, 1864, although that episode is unmentioned in this letter. Indeed, almost the whole of the letter relates to the health of Hale and his comrades in arms.
