Letter. William Lafayette Barrier, Near Frederick, Maryland, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier writes that all are cheerful and all is well as they make their way through Maryland. He reports that the Second Battle of Bull Run (29-30 August 1862) was a great victory, and that the Confederate army also enjoyed a recent victory in Kentucky (at Richmond, 29-30 August). He reports good health for himself and his regiment and that a man named John Pharr (Cpl. John M. Pharr, Co. F) was killed.
