Scope and Content

This is a letter written February 12, 1863 to Colonel Daniel W. Lindsey by George W. Monroe concerning Lindsey's command, the 22nd Kentucky Volunteer Infantry.

Monroe was writing from Camp Youngs in northern Louisiana. Lindsey apparently was in Kentucky, away from the regiment. Monroe was ill with "bilious fever" at the time he was writing. Monroe expressed his hopes that Lindsey would attempt to arrest deserters from the unit in Louisville and Frankfort. Other regimental news is included.

Monroe enclosed the unit's flag "that bore the blunt at Chickasaw Bluffs" and requested a new flag for the regiment. The battle flag mentioned is no longer with this document.
