1864


                         Dear parents,
             After a year at Gettysburg, the North had alot of problems with people going back home because of their 3 year enlisment. I decided to stay and help with the Yankees win the war. This year in 1864, the war is almost over. Lincoln got re-elected again after beating his rival General McClellan. We marched into Atlanta, one of the major manufactoring citiesc ommanded by William Sherman . We burned everything in the town while other regiment watched as the city.After that, Sherman's Army marched in Savannah, SC. Hopefully the war will be over because I wanted to go back home with you guys.
                                                                                                             From,
                                                                                                           Issac Long
