Dear Kate:

It has been nearly a year since this war started, and I still miss every day. I feel as if god has kept me alive in all the battle I have fought in. Those rebels, they destroyed one of our batteries, and captured many of our men. There were many points in which I should have died, but gods grace allowed me to keep living. At one point, I was surrounded by troops, while hiding in the mud ready to die. But thanks to gods grace, a group of reinforcements flanked me and my regiment, causing them to flee. That was good, but once I got back to camp, we had enough rations for each of us to have two helpings! Thank the lord of keeping me alive, I hope to see you and my lovely children some time soon.

Your Husband
Jesse
