Scope and Contents

Writing from Camp Harker in Tennessee, Joseph Price wonders if his regiment may yet go to Texas, where the papers report "that Kirby Smith is still fool enough to continue to fight for the ghost of the Confederacy[.]" He mourns the lives lost in the war, including in his own family: "I have had at least 5 Cousins and 1 Brother who have perished either in Battle or in the Hospital[.]" He mentions hearing of the death of Ambrose Price, specifically, and writes that "he then is another victim to Northern Abolitionists and Southern Aristocrats but we will hope that this is the last[.]"
