A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Father, Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker

Charles wrote to his father September 6, 1862, while stationed in Davenport, Iowa, waiting for his regiment to leave and go to war. In this letter he requests some spare money, if his father has any, so he might return to see his father and family near New London, Iowa. Charles deserted the army soon thereafter, and reenlisted, because this upset his father, in the Iowa 34th using his mother's maiden name as his surname (i.e. his middle name), as "Charles Pearsey." (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)
