CIVIL WAR - WAR-DATED LETTER FROM A UNION ARMY SOLDIER This war-dated letter was written by a Union soldier to his friend early in 1862, from Fort Warren, Massachusetts, a prison for Confederate prisoners. It was written in the wake of several Union victories and reveals high morale among Union troops and high faith in the abilities of Abraham Lincoln and General George McClellan. It also reveals some interesting details about life in a prison for prisoners-of-war, including the gleeful schadenfreude that the author felt at the prisoners' plights. Autograph letter signed Jacob Roberts/U. 4 pages, 7¾x9¾, 1 sheet folded, front and verso. Fort Warren, Boston Harbor, Massachusetts, March 17, 1862. Fort Warren served as a prison for Confederate military and political prisoners during the Civil War. This letter was written in the wake of several Union victories in the American Civil War, including Ulysses S. Grant's victory at Fort Donelson Feb. 11-16, 1862, as well as the naval battle between the ironclads CSS Virginia (better known as the CSS Merrimac) and the USS Monitor, which turned a potential Confederate rout into a draw at Hampton Roads, Virginia.

It reveals that Union troops (or at least the ones at Fort Warren, which still stands today) had high morale and plenty of faith in the abilities of President Abraham Lincoln's administration and General George McClellan, who commanded the Union Army of the Potomac. Lightly toned, foxed and creased. Folded once horizontally and twice vertically. Light tears at top and right edges along folds. See more material from these signers.
