[Transcript of Letter from John Patterson Osterhout to Junia Roberts Osterhout, January 24, 1864]

Date: January 24, 1864
Creator: Osterhout, John Patterson
Description: Transcript of letter from John Patterson Osterhout to his wife, Junia Roberts Osterhout, discussing his time with the Confederate Army. He was grateful to receive her letters from home and detailed the marches that he had been enduring. Like many of the other men, he felt unwell, and they were preparing for battle when he concluded the first part of his letter. The second part was written the next day after the soldier's new camp had been secured. The men were living off of a diet of oysters that day and John thought they might be reorganizing later that month. He wished he could see his children, especially his eldest son, Paul Osterhout, and hoped they would stay safe.
