Soldier Profile - Welch, Spencer Glasglow

 
Full Name: Welch, Spencer Glasglow
Home State: South Carolina
Allegiance: Confederate
Unit/Service Branch: 13th Infantry
 
Letters taken from a 1911 book published by the "Neale" publishing company.

Many of the letters written from the battlefield,
camp, bivouac or during a halt on the
march were lost. It has been necessary to condense
those that were received in order to form
them into a small volume. This was done by
eliminating only the most uninteresting, personal
matter that the letters contained and arranging
them consecutively. With these exceptions, they
are shown here exactly as they were written.
This work was done with the greatest care possible
by the surgeon's daughter, who is President
of the Daughters of the Confederacy for
the State of South Carolina and is interested in
preserving these letters for their historical value,
as they give most vivid pictures of a soldier's
life in the Southern army.
