This chapter presents Dick and Tally Simpsonsʼ wartime letters to their family in South Carolina dated from April to August 1862. These letters contained nothing specific except that Tally made the decision to re-enlist. Dick, who was suffering from chronic dysentery, was not able to re-enlist and decided to just let his time run out so that he could join a cavalry company being formed in the Pendleton area. However, Dick was given an honorable discharge on July 11, 1862 on account of bad health.
