Letter from Sarah Fletcher to Malcolm Nicholson Fletcher, 1865

Letter from Sarah Fletcher to Malcolm Nicholson Fletcher, 1865

Date
1865-04-29
Description
Letter from Sarah Fletcher to her son Malcolm Nicholson Fletcher written during the last days of the Civil War that discusses the surrender of Robert E. Lee's army and the impact of the Confederacy's impending collapse on the Florida's civilian population. Sarah Fletcher also comments on the activities of Florida's slaves on the eve of their emancipation. The original letter is badly faded and parts are completely illegible. A typed transcript is reproduced here because of its historical importance. The original letter was written at the very end of the Civil War, after the surrender of both Robert E. Lee's and Joseph E. Johnston's Confederate armies. While Florida was included under Johnston's April 26 surrender, it was not until the following month that Union troops formally accepted the capitulation of Confederates in Florida.
