Scope and Contents

George Price writes that his brother, Joseph, has been at home for over a week, and plans to stay until 25 April. He then turns to the fall of Richmond, which he believes "will not end the Rebellion and I hope to God if the powers at Washington still persist in a prosectuion of the war and in this determination to hang the Rebel heads that they will fiercely dispute every inch of ground and make every sod a soldiers sepulchere before submitting to such ignominy[.]" He continues to rail against the war and its objective "to kill off the Rebs no difference at what sacrifice and make the Nigger as good as a white man and a damned sight better and then settle things to suit themselves[.]"
