This Day in Georgia Civil War History

March 02, 1864

Fiance Wrote Soldier, Hoping to See Him

The fiance of a Georgia solder stationed in Virginia wrote him, hoping to see him soon, but fearing she would not be able to do so.

“…I wish I knew whether your furlough was approved or not. Then I would know better how to write, though I’ve almost decided that you are not coming, otherwise, you would have been here before now, that is if you rec’d. your furlough at the time expected. I shall be disappointed if you do not come. You have so far been greatly blessed and I hope will continue to be. …” Source: Clyde G.
