Original 2 page handwritten letter from Alonzo P. Brown of the Company E 107th Regiment New York Volunteers as he writes to a young lady (we think his married sister) named Mrs. Giles from the battlefields of the Civil War.
Written in ink he talks of her sending him a baseball she had promised as in a previous letter he explained that everyone was baseball crazy and they needed a good ball to play with in camp! He writes, You state that you are going to send the Ball. I have another letter to document this is clearly in regard to baseball! This regiment was a big deal at Gettysburg and also in the march to Atlanta and is one of the most famous in the entire Civil War. A rare letter in nice shape with the original envelope as well, this is a fantastic relic from the birth of baseball during the bloodiest conflict in American history!Signed on the inside (will get a scan of the inside page up ASAP). ALL Items Guaranteed Authentic Forever!
