William Elisha Stoker to Elizabeth E. Stoker, December 13, 1862

William Elisha Stoker to Elizabeth E. Stoker, December 13, 1862 (Page 1)
While at camp near Little Rock, Arkansas, in the winter of 1862, Confederate private William E. Stoker wrote to his wife Betty about receiving wages and a friend dying of pneumonia. Whereas Stoker could get the “big sum of $20,” he could not receive all of his due wages from the Confederate government. This letter was short, Stoker explained, because he was exhausted from marching through mud and rain all day. (By David Gillespie)
