Letter concerning charges against Gen. G. F. Shepley, 1865

A letter dated Feb. 12, 1865 and addressed to "Charlie" discusses the charges against Shepley.

The letter, from South Boston (possibly Virginia), may have been sent to Capt. Charles Thornton, an aide to Shepley.

It speculates on the reason for the charges against Shepley and the role Gen. Benjamin Butler, who had been relieved of his command a month earlier, might have played.
