November 17, 1862…My beloved Flynt: Love Me Forever Day 22
Letter writing…not so popular in our world, but back in 1862, it was the only way to stay close to the soldiers fighting so far away from home. Many of those letters survive today and give us a clear insight into what it was like for those men and women longing for news from home.
For Liberty Jordan, the heroine in my time travel, LOVE ME FOREVER, she’s not only far from home but in the wrong century. When she falls in love with a Union Army surgeon, she tries to warn him about the battle she knows is coming…
I have made the acquaintance in Falmouth of Dr. Freulich, an Army surgeon from Austria with Colonel Lamson’s regiment & a veteran of the Crimean War, she wrote, careful to use the ampersand, a common writing style of the day. With his help everyone at Rosebriar is recovering.
But with General Burnside building up his forces on the riverfront across from Fredericksburg, I fear we will soon be engaged in warfare on our front lawn.
According to Dr. Freulich, many soldiers will be wounded & in need of our help. I pray you will commend my decision to open Rosebriar to the casualties of the ensuing battle I fear is forthcoming.
Many big houses became hospitals during the Civil War and Rosebriar plantation was no exception.
She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
