PAIR OF LETTERS FROM SOLDIER IN 123RD NEW YORK INFANTRY, KIA IN 1864

$95.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2023-3043

Two hand written letters in ink from Horace H. Tooley, 123rd New York Infantry. Written clearly and easy to read. First letter is dated March 18, 1863, from Stafford Court House near Fredericksburg, VA. Fairly typical letter to brother with several comments regarding the health of brother (William), the state of the Army, and officers. Of special interest is that he inked an imprint of his clothing stencil on the bottom corner of the back page.

Second letter is to the parents and is dated June 4, 1863. Unfortunately this letter has two large portions torn (or mouse chewed) out of the center. Of interest is mention of "William" again who was captured at Chancellorsville and being held at the "Alexandria Parole Camp."

The 123rd New York Infantry was in the 12th Corps, Army of the Potomac until after Gettysburg. Then being transferred South. Horace H. Tooley was wounded in Dallas, Georgia and died of those wounds in June 1864. William A. Tooley was killed in action on April 10, 1865, at Aiken's Creek, North Carolina.  [jet] [ph:L]
