Michigan Civil War Collection Letters

Stoneman’s Siding Virginia May 10th 1863 Dear Father, Another great battle has been fought without a decisive result. Gory know the particulars better than I can describe them. Our whole army fought well except the 11th Corps which being surprised disgraceful broke and fled. This was the victory we might have obtained torn from our grasp by fate.
