Letters

On May 8, 1863, Mrs. Hattie E. Shoff of Circleville, Ohio, received the following letter.

Madame,


It is with great sorrow that I have to confirm the sad news of the death of your brother, B.C. Chellis. He was taken sick on the march from Columbia to Murfreesboro March 12. We arrived in camp March 15th, and had him, at his request, at once removed to the military hospital. He had a fever at the time but none of us thought it serious, after two weeks however, the typhoid fever set in, in spite of the all excertions [sic] and every care that could be taken, he began to sink, and finally on the 20th day of April about 11:00 a.m. he died without any struggle.

I can understand how deeply you must feel his loss, for he was a really good man, a brave solider universally beloved and mourned by every man in the battery. I know that it is useless for me to offer consolations at this moment, the loss is too sudden, too deep, too fresh and I can only point you to him who knows our sorrows and alone can heal such wounds.

With much respect, yours truly.
A. Sutermeister, Capt 11 Ind. Battery


To; Brig. Gen. W. D. Whipple Hqtrs. 11th Indiana Battery
A. A. G.
Chattanooga, Jan 25 / 1864


Sir, I have the honor to apply for a leave of absence of thirty(30) days,
to visit my family at Fort Wayne, Ind., which I am very desirous to do,
as I have not seen them for full two years.
I have never had a leave of absence before, never was absent from
my battery a day, since I entered the service. -
I ask for thirty days, because I wish, if possible, to attend to some
Ordnance business at Stevenson, Ala, & also to confer with Adj. Gen.
Laz Noble at Indianapolis on important company affairs.
The battery would be, during my absence, in charge of a Lieutenant
fully competent to transact all current business.

Very respectfully,
Your obed. servant
A. Sutermeister
Capt.
11th Indiana Battery

Recently, battery descendant Dave Gorski wrote an engaging and informative manuscript on "The Boys" of the 11th Battery. Currently, Dave is working on getting the book published. Let's hope that "The Boys" will soon be in a bookstore near you. Check back here for updates on Dave's forthcoming book.
