1863 May 11, Letter from J. Edward James, Franklin, Tennessee, to Lizzie James, Galena, Illinois.
Excerpt: "The past week has been one of the dullest that we have seen in this part of the country for a long time. No moves has been made. No skirmishes. No scares. Nothing but the regular route of fatigue, picket, and camp duty. So the men has had a good chance to wash up old duds and drowned some form of those little industrious critters."
