William B., age 19, P.O.W. in Virginia


No news from Hood + none of importance from Sherman. Weather windy + cold + very cold night. Received a letter from Dr. Smith from a camp Hamilton Va dated 8th just saying he had left an order with Capt Ahl for all of his money that should arrive for him to be paid to me + Capt Clark my messmate.  *(William Hyslop Summer Burgwyn Private Collection, North Carolina State Archives)
