Description

The Alfred H. Johnson Letters contains letters a young soldier wrote to his mother, Mrs. Alice H. Johnson, who lived in Nashville, Tennessee. There are very few references to or details of war, but the letters show obvious affection for his mother and other family members. The last envelope, postmarked January 18, 1924, is covered with a dozen stamps and contains two photographs and a newspaper clipping of the war poem "Prayer of a Fallen Soldier."
