Description

Letter from Charles Warner to his mother Mrs. Almon Warner, August 23, 1863. In it he waxes philosophical about the nature around him and how the nights often remind him of New England, thus turning his thoughts back to home. He also asks her about potentially being introduced to some young lady upon his return. Turning from pleasantries he intimates that officers in his unit have made arrangements to level charges against their commanding officer (Col. Price) for a host of reasons ranging from insubordination to harshness of command.
