As I have been posting my progress, I have also been sharing some excerps of letters by Confederate soldier, Eli Pinson Landers, from Weep Not For Me, Dear Mother by Elizabeth Whitley Roberson. Here are a few more...
" It makes me feel very bad just to think how many of my old associates is gone and they are all experiencing Eternity while I am yet on Terms of Time and Probation."
August 28, 1863
" All military duty is suspended for today. President Davis has proclaimed this day for fasting and prayer throughout the whole Confederacy, but I think the most of the boys eats a heap and prays but little, but I believe that we will have to be more obedient than we are before we can expect to be delivered from this state of trouble. We will have to deny our strength and acknowledge the Almighty's."
Now, all that's left is the quilting...I'll get to it soon, hopefully.
