On May 7, 1863, Daniel Boyd wrote his father from the 7th South Carolina’s camp about what he saw at the Battle of Chancellorsville. He tells him about the wounding of Stonewall Jackson. He says that the Yankees had a hard time of it: “We drove them one knight on four miles. I never saw Yankees runn before they plunged into the river. when they com to it their was a great many got drownded. they left everything they had.”
