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

2 pages, 5 x 8, written in pencil by Lieutenant Levi Lupton to his wife.

Macon, Georgia, Sunday, May 29th, 1864

My Dear Wife,

After my love to you and best wishes for your welfare I will inform you that I am in pretty good health at present and so are most of our fellow prisoners, and I do hope that you may be blessed with health and strength to bear up under your trials and afflictions that you have to endure. I have not recd. a letter from you for more than a month. The last I got was dated the 4th of April and in fact I donít know whether we will get letters here at all or not, or whether our letters will be ever sent away, but I think they will, but it will take from 4 to 6 weeks for one to reach you. I had nothing new to write. May the Lord bless and keep you and my Dear children is my humble prayer. Kiss little Levi for me and pray for me. Good by Dear from your loving husband.

Lt. Levi Lupton

[To]
Mrs. E.H. Lupton
Jerusalem,
Monroe Co., Ohio

Light age toning and wear. Minor paper loss at the lower right corner and left edge.

Lieutenant Lupton wrote this letter to his wife after being moved from Richmond where he had been held in captivity at Libby Prison since June of 1863, and he was now confined at Macon, Georgia.

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.

WBTS Trivia: Macon, the county seat of Bibb County, is located near the center of the state of Georgia, approximately 85 miles south of Atlanta, and it thus earned the nickname, "The Heart of Georgia." During the War Between The States, Macon, served as the official arsenal of the Confederacy. Camp Oglethorpe, in Macon, was first used as a prison for captured Union officers and enlisted men. Later it held officers only, with up to 2,300 at one time. The camp was evacuated in 1864. Macon City Hall, which served as the temporary state capitol in 1864, was converted into a hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers. Union General William Tecumseh Sherman spared Macon on his infamous "March to the Sea." His troops had sacked the nearby state capital of Milledgeville, and so the city prepared for an imminent attack, however Sherman passed by without entering Macon. The city was later captured by Union forces led by General James H, Wilson during his raid on April 20, 1865.
