This is a letter home to his family from a Confederate soldier on the eve of the Battle of Atlanta. The letter is held at the Altanta History Musem in Buckhead. If you read the letter, you can find mention of Atlanta-area landmarks like Stone Mountain. This letter was very moving to me, espically the script in which it was written - how exquisite for the battlefield conditions the writer had to endure. I took the photo when I was in Georgia back in August.

This title and just the whole concept of the letter of a soldier reminds me of the country song "Letters from home" which is a really beautifully portrayed story of a soldier reading a letter that he recieves from his parents and family at home... Great job, gives me chills just thinking about it :)

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, then itís possible that you donít fully understand the situation.
