July 10,1863 Gettysburg Battlefield Letter Dr.wm Judson For Sale

July 10,1863 Gettysburg Battlefield Letter Dr.wm Judson

Death of Strong Vincent and Gettysburg horrors via letter


Envelope postmarked Gettysburg, PA and page one



This sale is for a near fine condition original letter and envelope posted July 12, 1863 from Gettysburg battlefield by Dr. William Judson of Waterford, PA to his daughter Alice Judson (later Mrs. Charles Himrod) back in Waterford. He devotes about a page in all to the death of Gen. Strong Vincent and his wounds from a physicians standpoint. Judson states that Capt. Amos Judson and Lieutenant Clark have taken the body to Baltimore to be enbalmed " and his stricken father (Bethuel Vincent) will not see him until he reaches Baltimore." Gen. Strong Vincent is buried in Erie Cemetery, Erie, PA. Dr. Judson is pretty graphic in his descriptions of the hospital and surgeons cutting off limbs left and right. He was particularly irritated by a Confederate surgeon. When this item was first listed here, it included a two-page addition supposedly written the next day. Although the extra page had been stored in the same envelope, it was NOT from Gettyburg, but rather had been written a year earlier from Waterford, PA following the Union losses at Gaines Mills and Malvern Hill, VA. I have thus removed it from this Gettysburg letter and will list it separately without an envelope later.. Shipping via priority mail is free for this item in the united States.

Pages two and three of Dr. Judsons views of the aftermath



Page four of the letter. Two more pages were added the next day.



Payment via Paypal is acceptable. Shipping is free in the USA.
