Title

Letter from Fuller to his Mother and Father, Staunton, Virginia General Hospital, October 25, 1862

Description

Fuller writes that he will not be receiving a furlough because he is expected to be able for duty in 60 days. He has heard the Army is at Bunker's Hill, twelve miles below Winchester, Virginia, and are "expecting a fight."
He tells his brother to not leave the house if he can help it, for fear that the new conscription law may drag him into the war as well.
