Description

A copy of a typed transcript of a letter written by G. W. Moore, a Confederate soldier while encamped in New Kent County, Virginia. Writing in response to an earlier letter from his sister, Moore recounts a recent marriage ceremony held in camp for a soldier and his fiancee. Moore then moves on to the subject of his commander, Captain George Abbit (Company B, 46th Virginia Infantry Regiment). Moore feels that Abbit has treated him unfairly, refusing to grant him a furlough and having him placed in the guard house what he sees as minor infractions. Moore vows that if he "live[s] to see peace made I will settle with Abbit for treating me in the way he has."
