This chapter presents Tally Simpsonsʼ wartime letters to his family in South Carolina dated from February to April 1863. These letters tell about Tally's return to the routine and inactivity of winter camp after the great snowball battles of January in which his brigade in particular had been an active participant. One of the most poignant aspects of these letters is Tally's love affair with the dark-eyed Miss Fannie Smith.

Keywords:   wartime letters, Tally Simpson, winter camp, Fannie Smith
