April 28, 1864, Daniel Boyd – We will have to go where the most fighting will be done

Daniel Boyd rejoined his brother Andrew in the camp for the 7th South Carolina on April 26, 1864. On the 28th he would write their father Robert Boyd from camp. He reports on the health of all the home town friends with the army in his camp. He says that they are within 20 miles of the enemy and speaks of speculation about the next battle which they will fight. Money is very scarce, but he says that goods to buy are even more rare.
