Blog post 1864 (Jonathan Swagerty)

Dear Alexa,

I was released from Union captivity in a prisoner trade. I participated in a great battle in which our Confederacy has won. We won the battle of Wilderness in which we had the advantage in, because we knew the vantage points and where to set up before the attack. There were many casualties in this war and I don't know how much longer I can bare it. Lee led our troops into battle again with grace. He had to give orders and do things I wish I could unsee. Till next time, tell the kids I love them and keep the slaves in check.
