Rare - 8 Letter Grouping - 24th Battalion Tennessee Sharpshooters (maney's) For Sale

Rare Confederate 8-Letter Grouping

Private James E. Scott

24th Battalion Tennessee Sharpshooters (Maney's)

Here is a great 8-letter grouping from one soldier named J.E. Scott of the 24th Tennessee Battalion Sharpshooters. I have scanned a portion of each letter to give you and idea of the condition and legibility of each piece. They are all transcribed, some are in ink, a few in pencil - though the pencil written ones are a tad light, they are still legible. The paper on all are good, some are stained along the edges, but does not affect the content. They are all written to his wife and details different things at or about camp, other soldiers, etc. There are no details of any engagements. There are no covers. The dates of the letters are as follows: Jan 7th 1863 (written in pencil); Jan 31st (also includes Jan 7th letter in ink); Jan 18th 1863 (in pencil); February 1st, 1863; February 8th, 1863; February 12th, 1863; February 20th, 1863; and April 23rd, 1863. The April letter is from one of his company officers D.M. Long to the wife of J.E. Scott returning his belongings after his death in hospital. All the letters appear to be from the Confederate winter camp near Shelbyville, Tennessee as headlined on the letters themselves.I had done the search on J.E. Scott, he is easy to find in all the data bases - I do believe he did get sick or catch pneumonia (or consumption) and died as the letters would suggest. Good research project on some great Confederate letters.
