Michigan Civil War Collection Rare and Notable

Camp near Potomac Creek, Va. April 7th, 1863 My Dear Florence, Your letter of the 28th came last night & I enjoyed reading it far too much to write. I am so glad to know that you are so well. Keep on improving & do not let your mind be troubled. Everything here is as usual. Save that today we were honored with a visit from “Father Abraham”. Last night there came an order that our Corps would be reviewed today by the President & this A.M. we were congratulating ourselves because of the beautiful day. For some reason we take pride in being reviewed by the President. We were bound to disappointment for early this A.M. came an order saying that there would be no review by that Lincoln would ride through our camps.
