A Confederate Letter Home
Mr. William May, Tallahassee, Fla. sent a copy of the following letter to Harold C. Fisher, Yazoo City, Mississippi on April 15, 2000. The original letter was written by CSA soldier Thomas Jefferson Lee of Neshoba County, Mississippi. (The soldier was the son of Noel Lee and his wife Eliza W. Atkinson)
Mr. May says: "This is a copy of a copy transcribed by Lulu Lee Arnett, daughter of Thomas Jefferson Lee. She sent it to her sister in law, Maria Wiggins Lee, Fitzhugh Lee’s widow. She said in her letter to Maria that the original was brittle and breaking. I’m sure it no longer exists. Lulu wrote the letter to Maria in August of 1938.
Mr. May’s wife is descended from the Lee Family.
