1 AMOS B. GEORGE 1862 - 1863 SMALL ARCHIVE OF ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN CIVIL WAR LETTERS HANDWRITTEN BY A 48th REGIMENT MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEER
WENHAM MASSACHUSETTS MASS MA CAMP BANKS LOUISIANA 1862 Manuscript Very Good+ 
On offer is a small archive of 3 manuscript letters handwritten by Amos B. George, Co. A 48th Regt. Mass. Volunteers, two written in 1862 from Camp Lander in Wenham, Mass. and one written in 1863 from Camp Banks, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 5 x 8 (folded sheets), 10 pages total; with two original transmittal envelopes (postal cancel/ stamp removed from one envelope), with fine Civil War era content: [10/8/1862] "... We have got our uniforms now so that we are all ready for visitors, and I want you to be sure and come... I hope that we shall come down to Newburyport as a company, before we go, but it depends greatly on the officers...," [11/19/1862] "... We are not sure of having a furlough, although we expect it and shall probably get it... I staid four days over my [last] furlough but on account of good behavior, and the fact of its being my first offence, I escaped without punishment...," [2/18/1863] "... After being on the water thirty seven days, our Regt. landed at Baton Rouge on Wednesday Feb. 4th, two weeks ago to-day, an marching through the city to our camp-ground, which is two miles out from the river, we pitched our shelter tents... We are camped on what was the battle ground of Baton Rouge, and we have drilled day after day on ground in which the rebels who fell in that battle are buried, and this forenoon our company marched over one of the mounds, little thinking, I suppose, of the hopes which are buried in that heap of earth. Well, the soldier's life is a careless one in many respects and it is well it is so... Our Brigade is commanded by Col. Chapin of the 116th N.Y. Regt. a three years Regt. He is acting Brig-Gen. Our Brigade is the 1st in Augurs Division and is composed of the 116th N.Y. 21st Maine and 48th Mass. Reg'ts... Our Reg't has not received a cent of pay yet, but we expect to be paid off soon. Milk here is 10 cts a pint, Mollasses ditto and Apples 6 or 8 cts apiece, so you see that we cant get these little things for nothing in this country..." Folds, two letters in ink and one in pencil, overall VG.
