This lot features the first of three amazing items related to the Battle of the Crater during the Siege of Petersburg in 1864. Written by New York soldier Milo T. Felton from an army hospital, he describes his wounding during the infamous attack. This two-page letter is signed by Felton and is very legible. It comes with the original envelope. This item, along with the miner's lamp, and Harpers Weekly print (see my other auctions) were part of a display at the old, privately owned Harpers Ferry Museum.

See photo for a transcript of a portion of the letter. These items originates from the now defunct Harpers Ferry Civil War Museum (not affiliated with the National Parks Service). Please be sure to check out my other auctions for more great Civil War items.
