Summary
Letter, 7 June 1862, from an unknown officer, probably in the 1st North Carolina Artillery Regiment, possibly Company C, to his wife in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. He notes his need for a horse; mentions Captain [Thomas H.] Brem (1816-1876); and comments on Petersburg, Virginia, the weather, and the regiment's next assignment, possibly at Drewry's Bluff. The writer mentions that Captain [Moses N.] Hart's (b. ca. 1822) Company from Mecklenburg County (Company I, 37th North Carolina Infantry) suffered many casualties at the battle of Hanover Court House, mentioning two soldiers by name. The writer hopes that he will be able to return home for visit soon
