Cassimere Churchill, Albany, New York, to "Dear Brother" (Deacon), 1861 November 18
Cassimere writes of bathing and the system of water and pipes. He describes the infantry's barracks, artillery leaving for Washington, D.C., the city, and Hudson River. He tells of a court martial, fight in town, and drilling exercise where men left formation when asked "to form on fours." He advises his brother, "I want you to be a man in every respect, a man that is a Man is the noblest work of God."
