Letter to Gen. G.F. Shepley on 'enemies,' New Orleans, 1862

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

George Thomas of New Orleans wrote to Brig. Gen. George F. Shepley, military governor of Louisiana, to inform him about a couple who, he believed, were going in and out of Union lines and who were not friends of the Union.

Thomas told Shepley, a Portland lawyer before and after the war, where he could find the couple.

He added "f.m.c." after his name, indicating he was a free man of color.
