Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a cool Confederate document from 1864. This is a hand written letter home from a Confederate General to his wife with some for his daughter. It measures 8-3/8th inches by 10-1/4th inches in size. It was written from Dalton (Georgia) on March 4th 1864. This Civil War letter to his wife, Margaret from Dalton (Georgia), Roddey asserts that dated March 4, 1864, is from Dalton, Georgia, were he was leading his cavalry brigade in support of Nathan Bedford Forrest's army. He writes to his wife mostly about family and personal matters, but does admit that "although in front of Our Army I know Very little of the Enemy, & less of the Country, Around me. I fear that my ignorance of the Country will damage my usefulness Very Much." Confederate Brigadier General Phillip D. Roddey (1826-1897) raised his own company of cavalry and saw action at the Battle of Shiloh, Brices Cross Roads, and the Battle of Selma. General Braxton Bragg described Roddey as "invaluable." It is simply signed to his wife, "Yours Truly" with "P.D. Roddey" for Phillip D. Roddey. It is a great Southern document and is accompanied by a xerox image of the General in civilian clothes.
