John T. Cuddy to John H. Cuddy, July 7, 1861 (Page 1)
John Taylor Cuddy enlisted in Company A of the 36th Pennsylvania only one month before writing this letter to his parents from the regiment's training camp at Fort Wayne in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Cuddy expressed his youthful exuberance and optimism as he wrote, "we will soon lick the south and then we will come home and we will spend a happy life with you agin." (By Rebecca Solnit)
