1866 May 7

Abstract:

A letter from W. W. Duffield, former Union soldier, to Lewis Maney, former Confederate officer, Woodside, Pennsylvania, 7 May 1866.

Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of one letter from Duffield to Major Lewis M. Maney, C.S.A., relative to a grape vine sent by Duffield to Maney in 1862, and to Maney's impending visit to Woodside. It also refers to Maney as one "who sheltered me when a stranger, and who healed and comforted me when wounded and a prisoner," evidently a reference to the two men's encounter during the Civil War. That, however, is the lone reference to the conflict.
