Appendix: letters from our army workers.
From a large number of letters received, in response to circulars sent out soon after the war, I select the following as either containing new matter, or as supplementing and corroborating statements made in the body of the book.
They were personal letters not intended for publication, and yet I beg that the writers will excuse the liberty I take in publishing them in the form in which they were written, as I can thus give a clearer view of the interesting and important matters of which they treat.
I give them without comment of my own.
From Rev. A. C. Hopkins, of the Presbyterian Church, chaplain Second Virginia Infantry, and Missionary chaplain to Gordon's Division.
