This chapter presents Dick and Tally Simpsonsʼ wartime letters to their family in South Carolina dated from October 1861 to March 1862. These letters are about their recovery from measles and their transfer to the winter quarters of the Confederate Army near the Old Manassas. Since there was no attack by the enemy, the soldiers focused on keeping themselves warm at night and discussing what to do about the recently enacted legislation regarding re-enlistment.
