Family don’t worry about me please. We all ready in the advantage of a war . We had just gotten a W in the war. We are nearing the end of the civil war . I Am very happy that we are winning the battles and president Lincoln is very happy too.

Finally dis war is gonna end and I get to go home. The confederate general Robert lee surrendered Appomattox courthouse. I finally get to go home and forget this long war. I did not think this war would of lasted so long. I Also heard from a friend of mine that Abraham Lincoln had been assassinated at fords theater. Them Johnny’s were angry about losing the war and sent someone to get revenge.

Dear family

It is the year of 1864. Abraham Lincoln was just reelected into the white house just in November . Mama , Pa , Sistas, and brathas we have just had another war . The sherman's march was really good for the union . Moma donn't worry about me. We are winning now. The union have the advantage  now because we have a strong army. Papa we are doing great over here in the battles. We have been successful through the year.

Dear Harriet

Am i glad that we live in the north. i have a few friends who were apart of shermans march across georgia and its just something i wouldnt think would happen. That sherman is sure crazy. He marched right up to georgia and what ever was in his path he destoryed. Any house has looted then burned. All the slaves were taken as contraban and i hope they dont take them north cause that would be horrible. sometimes i feel for those seceshes because sherman said he would make georgia howl and by god he did . my friend told me he couldnt find words to describe the destruction and how bad he felt about doing it. i dont think i could destroy a lonly womans house ,but them johnnys are sure persistat and i do think that is the only way to get them to surender.but i dont think them secesh have it as bad as we used to have it back in ireland.

sincerly thomas norton
