Description

Letter to Oscar Ladley's mother and sisters from Philippi, Virginia. In his letter Oscar recounts being awoken by a call "to arms," but the secessionists spotted by the picket guard never appeared. This was one of four times that this had happened to their company. Oscar also informs his mother and sisters that he has sent them many letters, but that he has only received one from them so far.
