Title:C. W. Hale letter

This collection consists of one letter from Ward to his father, dated 28 July [1864] and written at Ft. Ward. The plastic cover in which the letter was housed on arrival identifies Ward as a member of the 166th Regiment, Ohio Volunteers, a unit that was stationed at Ft. Ward from May to September 1864. The unit also took part in defending the city from Confederate General Jubal Early's raid of 11-12 July 1864, although that episode is unmentioned in this letter. Indeed, almost the whole of the letter relates to the health of Hale and his comrades in arms.
