August 18, 1862, Daniel Boyd wrote their father from Malvern Hill, where the 7th had been positioned one week after the big battle. Brother Pressley is sick again and they have been moving frequently. A number of new conscripts have arrived in their camp and Daniel is concerned that the army has moved so forcefully to reenforce Jackson that they would not be able to stop the Union army if they made a move on Richmond.
