Description
Letter from Chas. W. Blossom in New York to Captain Thomas Sparrow at Fort Warren in Boston. Blossom writes that military clothing might be objected to, but that he can send regular clothing to Sparrow's soldiers. Blossom then writes that they may be willing to send paper as long it as it is not used for any wrong doing because they value their good name above money. The Civil War correspondence relates the activities of Thomas Sparrow and his Washington Grays from their formation as a volunteer company in April of 1861, until their parole from a Union prison in February, 1862. From the papers of Thomas Sparrow (1819-1884), a lawyer from Washington, N.C. who fought in the Civil War and later represented Beaufort County in the North Carolina General Assembly.
