1 L. O. CARPENTER 1864 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT LETTER TO COL. CHARLES C. DWIGHT REGARDING THE DEATH AND FUNERAL OF THEIR FRIEND COLONEL W. BABCOCK HERO OF THE BATTLE OF WINCHESTER VIRGINIA
AUBURN NEW YORK NY 1864 Very Good English 
On offer is a handwritten manuscript letter by L.O. Carpenter who writes lengthy letter, 4 full pages, 4to., to Col. Charles C. Dwight. Letter is dated Auburn (NY) Oct. 17, 1864. A great letter about the death and funeral of their "dear and mutual friend Col. W. Babcock." Great detail about the battle death of Col. Babcock. From the internet we found the following: Lt. Colonel Babcock had command of the 75th NYVI (320 men strong) at the Battle of Winchester, Virginia on September 19, 1864, and was wounded with a shattered leg at the head of the Regiment after two horses had previously been shot from under him. Upon being spotted lying in the field, Major Andrew L. Pitzer (Aid-de-Camp to General Jubil Early) tended to him, and offered to send Babcock's valuables along to his wife Nellie, which in turn he did. After the Federal Army retook the field later in the day, Babcock was moved to a field hospital where his wounded leg was amputated by Surgeon Benedict (75th NYVI). On October 6, 1864, after writing letters to friends and family (including a letter of thanks to Major Pitzer, and a good-by to his wife Nellie), Lt. Colonel Babcock died of his wounds at U.S. General Hospital in Winchester, Virginia.[ix] He was brought north and is buried in Glenwood Cemetery in Homer, New York. Comes with stamped envelope. VG.
