These letters are a little hard to read at times, but are worth the effort. Pvt. stallings served from the beginnig to the end of the war. He was at Sharpsburg, Sept. 17th 1862 and fought at Gettysburg near Culp's Hill. His Great Gradson told me he walked from Appomattox back home in Carolina at wars end. He never talked about slavery, or States Right's. He was a soldier doing his duty as he saw it. He was defending his home, and his dear "Betty".
