Title:Benjamin Hurd Letters

This collection consists of two letters from "Benjamin Hurd" of the 1st Ohio Light Artillery, Battery G. In these letters to his brother he says, "Richmond has fallen into our hands" and adds that he does not think the war will be over soon. He also makes a reference to the Confederate Army, saying the Rebels "fight like the Devil." In the February 10 letter, he makes extremely disparaging remarks about the local population near Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
