L159 - 160Th New York Soldier's Letter

79.50
This is a 1-page note (43/4" x 73/4") written on U.S. Christian Commission letterhead from Nelson Underwood, Co. "G", NY Vols from Wickim Hospittle [sic] in Baltimore to a Mr. E. P. Spink telling him that any letters sent to the regiment for Underwood need to be directed to his new hospital address. He describes the all night ride to Baltimore and directs Spink to give the bitters he ordered to Henry Wolbridge. Underwood, a wagoner by trade, enlisted in August 1862 at the age of 43.The note was written 5 April 1865, eleven days before his discharge. It is extremely legible. A simple, and affordable soldier's letter - nice because of the Christian Commission banner letterhead and because of the regimental identification. The 160th fought under Sheridan against Early in the Shenandoah Valley sustaining severe losses at Opequan and Cedar Creek.
