Letter, 1862 June 4
6 page letter addressed to "Mother" from Adams Run, South Carolina. Winn was a Corporal in Company "D" of the South Carolina 3rd Infantry Battalion. He writes extensively about his disdain for the North and the belief that permanent separation is the only possible outcome. ..."better far to be crushed than live in disgrace our separation from the North is distinct, unalterable, complete. We are henceforth a distinct race and no interest can again unite us..." Winn goes on to describe news he received of a great battle fought on the Chickahominy in which his brother participated.
