In Search Of Lawtons & Basingers: Names of Members Of The 18th Ga. Battalion

These next several pages are faded, or perhaps the ink was faint all along, and the writing is very difficult for me to read.

Perhaps you’d like to have a go at it.

We’re almost at the end of all the papers for the William Starr Basinger file at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Next will be a contract for a house to be built in Savannah on Liberty Street, then a few random newspaper clippings, and then.  We’re. through!  But only with the segment of his life.

    Thank you, Ruth! I have been sharing these with my nephew ( a huge Civil War buff having grown-up near Gettysburg) and it is so interesting to read first hand accounts. We will work on the translation!

      Is everyone relieved that he’s out of prison?
      You know that we could order copies from the Wilson Library, which would most probably be clearer than my photos of these documents.
