    Love these! i just sold one where the soldier was describing the scene in the Civil War when Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant. To be holding that letter in my hand and know that it was with this soldier during that exact time. Wow! Wish I would have had the foresight to scan it before I sold it:( Thanks for posting, fun to read...
