Cassimere Churchill, Washington, to "Dear Father", 1862 June 17
Cassimere writes, "...we went within eight miles of Richmond or to White house landing and then our term of detachment ran out...our officers kept out of harms way and that did not go down verry well..." His regiment had been accused as cowards because they were guards rather than in the fight. "...Col. Hunt told Gen. Palmer 'those men (speaking of us volunteers) have been shamefully abused for being reported as cowerds..." He gives more of Colonel Hunt's remarks about their help in Williamsburg and how they handled the ammunitions supply. Still no horses "I will never go in the field again on foot let what will, come"
