MS-138: Oscar D. Ladley Papers
ms138_01_06_03; United States--Civil War; Yellow Springs (Ohio); Gettysburg, Battle of, 1863; Morgan's Ohio Raid, 1863
Two separate letters, written on the same page, to Oscar Ladley from his sister in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Alice writes about news from home about various acquaintances, and about being unsure whether to write to Oscar after the most recent battle. Her second letter mentions "Morgan is within 5 miles of Cincinnati" and she writes about the excitement as all the "able-bodied men" leave to head to Cincinnati.
