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

2 pages, 5 x 8, written in ink, by Lieutenant Levi Lupton to his daughter.

Romney, Va., March 14th, 1863

Laura E. Lupton

Dear Daughter,

I thought I would write to all my dear little children this afternoon for it seems to do me more good than anything else. I can be at Hell sis. I have not much news to tell you at this time as I have put most of the news in Maggy’s letter, but still I may say something too. Well I went today to see a Doctor Lupton that lives here. He is a large, fat man, looks a little like Uncle George. He has some right nice looking children. I saw one little girl about your size, but I did not get much acquainted with them. They are pretty strong Secesh, and so I did not trouble them much. Well sis I want you and Maggy to write to me often for it does me a heap of good to get letters from my children. I want to know how you are getting along at school, if you are learning very fast and how you like your teacher. Well sis I want you to try and be a good girl and do all you can to help your Mother for she has a heap to do and a heap of trouble to bear, but if you dear Children love each other and try to please each other and please your Mother it will help her in her troubles. Good children will do all they can to help their Mother. Whatever broils disturbs the street. There should be peace at home where sisters dwell and brothers meet. Quarrels should never come. Birds in their little nests agree and it is a shameful sight for children of one family to fall out and chide and fight. Jesus who reigns above the skies and keeps the world in awe was once a child, as young as I, and kept his Father’s law at twelve years old. He talked with men. The Jews all won during stand, but he obliged his Mother then and came at her command. From your loving Pap.

Lieut. L. Lupton

Light wear. There is an ink stain on page one, however all of the words are readable and the letter comes with a complete typed transcript. Although this will be considered a condition flaw by many, it actually humanizes Lieutenant Lupton. We can only imagine the stress and heartache he suffered being away from his wife and children and fighting in the biggest war in American history as he writes this letter to his loving daughter.

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.
