William Elisha Stoker to Elizabeth E. Stoker, October 20, 1863 (Page 1)
The concerns foremost in Confederate soldier William Stoker’s mind were those of army life. In this letter, he wrote to his wife Elizabeth about the maneuvers of his division and their lack of provisions. While he has not seen any fighting, the men in their cavalry division have. Elizabeth had sent some clothes and food, and the men were clearly very grateful for these small things. He also sent his advice about financial matters at home. (By Morgan Mintz)
