Scope and Content

Served as a bugler in Company F of the 4th Virginia Cavalry Regiment during the Civil War. Collection consists of a letter, dated erroneously as 1861 but obviously written well after the Civil War, possibly in 1891, by Powell in a soldier's home to Miss Dorris about his upcoming visit to Hanover County, Virginia, to view a presentation of portraits, probably of Civil War notables. He also writes about his regiment's movements during the war. Transcript available.
