Letter. Rufus A. Barrier, Camp near Charleston, South Carolina, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Part of: Barrier Family Letters
Rare Books & Special Collections, Hesburgh Libraries
Barrier tells his father that their brigade left Wilmington for Charleston on 16 February: "We are stationed near James Island in the woods without any tents or baggage of any kind. I have found S.C. a hard place just as I expected to find it before I arrived here." He asks that his mother send "two colored shirts" with one of the men currently back at home at the earliest opportunity and closes by giving his love to friends and family.
