Written by an officer who was captured at Winchester, Va., and who died as a P.O.W.!

From Libby Prison, Richmond, Virginia

Officer writes to his commanding officer in the field!


2 pages, 7 3/4 x 9 3/4, in ink, written by Lieutenant Levi Lupton, to Captain James P. Mann, 116th Ohio Infantry.

Libby Prison, Jan. 21st/64

Capt. J.P. Mann,

Dear Sir,

Your favor of the 21st Dec. was recd. yesterday and you can hardly imagine the good it done me to hear from you and to hear that you were all in good health. My health has not been very good for the last month but I think if I could get out of this place I would soon be all right again. No person can imagine the anxiety that we have for an exchange unless they have tried it. Two days more will make seven months that I have been shut up in this place and I think if I ever get out they will never get me back here with whole bones for I would almost as soon be blotted out of existence as to be confined here. What would I not give to be at once more with my company and I do hope and pray that it may not be long before I get back again. I was sorry to hear of the death of so many of our brave boys by disease, but it canít be helped. Well in regard to the money that you say you sent to me I have never heard of it. It is probable that the authorities here have it and if so I may get it yet. I guess I can get along well enough without those things that I sent for although they would have been very acceptable, but I recd. a nice box of things from home which has kept me going. Give my love and best wishes to all the boys and remember me in your prayers and may we soon meet again is the prayer of your good old friend Lt. Levi Lupton.

From Lt. Lupton
To Capt. J.P. Mann
Comp. C, 116th Regt.
O.V.I.

Light age toning and wear. Archival tape repairs on the folds. Very scarce and desirable Libby Prison officer's letter written to his captain and commanding officer in the field. Since prisoner of war letters were highly regulated you seldom find them written to other officers.

1st Lieutenant James P. Mann, served in Co. C, 116th Ohio Infantry. He was promoted to captain, June 13, 1863, and was mustered out of service at Richmond, Va., on June 14, 1865.

Levi Lupton, was 39 years old, when he enlisted on July 25, 1862, at Columbus, Ohio, as a 2nd lieutenant. He was commissioned into Co. C, 116th Ohio Infantry, on September 19, 1862, at Gallipolis, Ohio. He was promoted to 1st lieutenant on June 13, 1863, but was never mustered at that rank because he was captured the next day, June 14, 1863, at Winchester, Va. He spent time confined in Libby Prison, Richmond, Va., and at Macon, Ga., and Charleston, S.C., where he died on September 12, 1864.
