Description

Writing to his father in Dennysville, Pvt. John Sheahan of Co. K of the Maine 1st Cavalry Regiment reported on the "bully times" the troops had been having. He said they found several Union ambulances filled with U.S. army blankets and ammunition left by the Confederates. He also told his father that they had passed the encampment where his brother William was, but he was unable to stop and wanted to go see him.
