Letter from Frank L. Lemont to his mother J.S. Lemont, December 15, 1862. In it he tells of his experience fighting at Fredericksburg and how the regiment during that time failed to take any casualties but yet it still made a deep impression on him and his fellow soldiers forced to take shelter from the enemy cannon fire. Frank also remarks that he cared little for Achsah constantly telling him of marriages and engagements.
