    Union Officer's Letter by Benjamin Wright of the 10th Connecticut Volunteers. Five pages, 5" x 8", May 22, 1864, "Head Quarters . . . Bermuda Hundred Va." to "My Dear Abbie." Lieutenant Wright writes his wife, "Friday . . . the Rebs attacked our lines in right good earnest and a sharp fight was kept up all the afternoon. The rebs suffered very severely. . . . The fight was desperate but the rebs were severely punished. They were actually piled up in heaps." Wright's regiment fought at Roanoke Island, Newbern, Deep Bottom, and the Siege of Petersburg. Fine.
