Soldier's Letter, 2 1/2 pages, 8vo., Camp nest Bell Plain, Virginia, May 10, 1863. Cornelius Smith (Co. A, 107th Pennsylvania Infantry, wounded Antietam & killed 8/19/64 at Weldon Railroad, VA) writes pertaining to the death of Confederate General "Stonewall" Jackson.

"...We have been across the river and we had a little fun with the Rebels. We wounded Stonewall Jackson and he died before they got him to Richmond and General Hill was killed. The Rebel loss was heavy and we lost a great many. We are on this side of the river again. The rebels almost captured our Regiment for we were the last coming off the field. The Rebels were close on behind us. We left a great many wounded in the Rebels hands and I tell you I would not like to be one of them. The Rebels are trying to comes over here. Our Pickets killed eight yesterday...Cornelius Smith"

Pencil but legible. Fine.
