Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

Mr. Henry went to Asheville. The battle at Richmond was fought on the 31st May & Sunday 2nd June. Terrible slaughter on both sides. I made Zona’s & Willie’s bonnetts today. All are well. Warm & fair. No news.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
