Letter from Council A. Bryan to His Wife, Cornelia Scriven Bryan, 1863

Letter from Council A. Bryan to His Wife, Cornelia Scriven Bryan, 1863

Date
1863-07
Description
Letter from Council A. Bryan to his wife, Cornelia Scriven Bryan, in the aftermath of the 1863 Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania, which had ended in defeat at Gettysburg. During this campaign, the Second, Fifth and Eighth Florida Regiments had comprised a brigade, under the command of Colonel David Lang, that was part of Richard Anderson's Division of A.P. Hill's Corps. The Floridians were heavily engaged on both July 2 and 3, and participated in the assault on the Union center on the final day's fighting. At Gettysburg, the Florida Brigade suffered perhaps the highest percentage of casualties of any similar unit in the Confederate army. In this letter, which was written on very small-sized paper, Bryan described the retreat into Virginia, listed the names of survivors and sick left along the route, and expressed his frustration over the heavy casualties and the lack of recognition the Florida Brigade received. Interestingly, he makes a number of derogatory comments about the conduct of some of the troops in George Pickett's Division of Virginians. The State Archives only holds a copy of this letter. The original is in the possession of the donor.
