1 forrest2 forrest4 forrest



This is a remarkable Autograph Letter Signed (ALS), 4 pages at Camp Fork, 5/11/63. The soldier, A. Anderson (Co.”B”, 4th TN Cav./ Forrest’s Div.) writes his wife  in legible pencil while recovering from a wound on his neck. Incredible content letter. I have probably read this 50 times. For full transcription, please see scan. 

Letter comes with the original postal cover with the soldier’s ID and manuscript “Due 10” with a McMinnville, Ten. 5/15/63 hand-stamped postmark. This item is in overall Very Fine condition. This is a wonderful piece of history and it would be very exciting to learn more about this soldier.
