Letter detailing the movement of Union forces following the surrender of Mobile, Alabama, in April 1865.
The collection consists of one letter from Phillips to his wife Carroline [sic], written from Indianapolis, Indiana, on 9 September, no year stated. Phillips assures his wife early in the letter "that you are a going to get your bounty money," probably a reference to enlistment bounties that many states began to offer as enlistments began to drop off following the first flush of enthusiasm for the war. This suggests that the letter may date from 1862 or 1863 but there appears to be no other means of dating it. The remainder of the letter is largely devoted to describing how Phillips' friends are doing, although at one point he states "i [sic] tell you this is a lazy life[;] they are all sick of it."
