IMPORTANT SHENANDOAH COUNTY, VA, CIVIL WAR LETTER: A letter dated May 8, 1863, from a camp near Fredricksburg, VA, from Confederate soldier Jacob Golladay, Jr., to his brother David after the Battle of Chancellorsville.

The letter tells how Confederate Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson was wounded by his own men. Golladay also writes that Gen. A. P. Hill was slightly wounded. Other names listed in the letter are Morgan Hottle KIA and buried near Pughs Run, Silas M. Funk, Henry Huffman, George Martin, David Rittenour. Dr. Louis H.
