This is a very nice Confederate autograph letter Signed, 2 pp., approx. 8″ x 12 1/2″, from Sullivan’s Island, Battery Bee, on July 20th/64. The soldier, Clark Eldridge ( Co.D, 1st SC LightArtillery), writes girlfriend on romantic matters at first and then it moves into fascinating military information. For full transcript of letter please see scans. Confederate letters written from the forts surrounding Charleston Harbor are very rare and uniqueas these forts witnessed the greatest artillery barrage on any fort in U.S. history! This is in very fine condition. Great Civil War letter for your rare Confederate collection.
