Thomas Boyd Nov. 26, 1862

On November 26, 1862, Thomas Boyd found himself in the hospital in Dalton, Georgia. It is from there that he writes his sister, Mary Jane Hall. He had once again been battling pneumonia, this time for a month. Compounding this was another common complaint of the soldier, diarrhea. His illness had caused him to be moved first to Knoxville then to Chattanooga and finally to Dalton. At this point Thomas was on the mend and was nearly well enough to return to the 19th South Carolina in Tullahoma, Tennessee.
