Here is a cool letter written home by a soldier that was serving with the 18th Alabama Infantry. The letter is written home by a soldier named Simon to his wife. It is dated from June 15th 1863 from Wartrace, Tennessee. He writes "you spoke as if you expect Macon would fall into the hands of the Yanks and that your determination to remain with them. I am Surprised I cannot consent for you to remain in any place the Yankees control. It is my power to keep you out of the hands of the Yankees. I cant do much here but talk. It shocks my my little wife being subjected to the cruelty and insult of such unprincipled wretches as the Yankee. If you had heard of their wretched deeds hardly you think you could remain any place they control of you had rather go to Alabama Gen. Cleburnes Division (the one we have just been taken from) will go to Vicksburg part of his division left yesterday. I can see no prospect of the war closing. In two years we moved our camp three miles from War Trace on the opposite side of the R. We have a spring of much better water one mile from camp we have shade trees over our tents. The hill on which we are camped is clean and I am pleased with out present campground since we left Mobile. I am your affect. Husband Simon" What a cool Confederate letter during the heart of the War.
