PRICE……SOLD

This is an amazing handwritten letter by Confederate Sgt. Thomas W.G. Inglet, Co. C., 28th Georgia Infantry. He wrote this letter during the seige of Petersburg on May 28th, 1864. I have added a photo of the entire transcript so please review that content. In one line he writes “My dear wife we have lost 30 or forty boys out of our regt an one out of our company uphear it was Robbert Autry Poor little Bob he got his thigh broke an fell an then a yankee run up to him an ses to him god dam you I will finish you an shot bob through his side but did not kill him as he shot too far to one side but I don’t think Bob can live.” The soldier Sgt. Inglet is referring to is Robert Autry. He grew up in Spalding County GA and enlisted on 9/10/1861 as a Private. Autry died of his wounds on July 1, 1864 at Petersburg, VA. Sgt. Inglet, who wrote this letter, was severly wounded when he was shot in the right leg on October 7th, 1864.

Overall size is 19 X 25.5. This is an incredible piece of history and would be a great addition to your civil war collection. It has great war content with a wonderful print and it should be proudly displayed on your wall. This comes beautifully and professionally custom framed, air tight, using only museum quality materials i.e. acid free mat board and backing, ultra-violet protection glass, etc. The frame is made with high quality, beautifully finished mahogany wood. I will consider all reasonable offers!
