Description

Letter from Horace Wright writing to his wife Maryanne from the camp at Culpeper Court House in Virginia. He describes the recent battle:

"We had the hardest fought battle...Lyman had his right arm shot off...I was driving a carriage to bring the wounded off the field ...when he was wounded so I missed him...It near about breaks my heart to see my poor boy with but one arm and to be a cripple for life."
