Title:Letter from Robert C. Caldwell to Mag Caldwell, February 29th, 1864
Description:

Letter from Confederate soldier Robert C. Caldwell to his wife Mag Caldwell. Robert is serving as a private in Company C., 10th Battalion, North Carolina Heavy Artillery near Wilmington, N.C. Robert writes from Fort Caswell and tells Mag he received her letters concerning his mother's illness. He says he would give anything to see his sick mother but his furlough home was not approved. He feels that the doctor's letter written to support his furlough request was inadequate and that is the reason his request was denied. He tells Mag he is glad his brother Dinson A. Caldwell is home and wants him to write.
