1863 blog

1863 was the hardest year of fighting yet. This year was the first time we got to fight directly. I finally got my wish. We fought hard in the Battle of Gettysburg and almost 1/4 of my fellow soldiers where killed or injured. I got severely wounded and had to have my leg amputated. It was so hard on me but I will continue fighting for the great Union even on a wheelchair. I am so tired of eating bad food, such as salt pork and hard tack.  Sutlers where almost never present near us. Even with all these obstacles I am still determined to fight.
