Scope and Content

Soldier in the 2nd Massachusetts Artillery in the Civil War. Letter written September 10, 1863, to Dear Friend from Newberne, North Carolina. Calkins exalts the power of Christ, and despairs that his fellow soldiers care only for things that are low and devilish and seek only to gratify their lusts and passions.
