Sold! Original Civil War Letter: Als, From J. C. Ramsey to W. C. Winston, Dated Feb. 17th, 1862 icon
From the seller: "[Civil War] ALS, FROM J. C. RAMSEY TO W. C. WINSTON, DATED FEB. 17th, 1862. Single sheet, with 2pp. of text, measuring 5 x 8 in. Small chip to right margin, affecting one word. The letter is written from Columbus, Miss. (sic), on the day following the surrender of Fort Donelson. (The town of Columbus, Mississippi is situated on the Mississippi River. ) The author writes that he has heard "contradictory reports from Fort Donaldson (sic)...[that we were] defeated & have surrendered to the enemy which I hope is false. " He says the community is nervous because their "Rifle Company doubtless were in the engagement..." The commander of Fort Donelson, Simon Buckner had surrendered his entire command to Grant on Feb. 16, & little more than a week later, Kentucky & most of Tennessee came under Union military control. (McPherson, BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM, pp. 397-403)."
