A road-weary Freeman Colby schools his New England correspondents:

<< BEFORE: "Dear Parents" (Rappahannock Station) | NEXT: New job! >> 

SOURCE TEXT = Freeman Colby: "Dear Parents" (letter / 9 August 1863 / Rappahannock Station 

This irate response confirms many of the details described in Roe's account of the recent march.  (Phew -- I love it when source texts agree with each other!)

As a stand-in for critical family members, I've drawn Colby's disgruntled old Uncle Harriman, whom Colby has singled out previously as someone he disagrees with politically.  (Uncle Harriman is a Democrat, so I presume he's against the war one way or another.)
