On offer is an interesting, original early Civil War related manuscript letter handwritten by Union soldier Pvt. Elisha Newell of the 7th Conn. Vols., 6 page, 8vo., Camp Buckingham Washington, Oct. 3, 1861 who offers in part some fascinating observations to his Uncle: "…We are now encamped within 2 miles of Washington…we found the stores at Havre de Grace all closed in anticipation of the arrival of the 'bloody 7th'…we reached Baltimore at midnight and marched down through the city…occasionally a jeering laugh from some attic would be heard, or a faint hurrah from the sidewalk, but we are met with no opposition…we could not go into the City. We passed reg't after reg't encamped about us…men who will not hesitate to lay down their lives for their country… Most of us hope we will never be called to shed the blood of our brothers…" Overall VG.
