Feb. 18, 1863 – Fenton Hall at Rantowles

On February 18, 1863 Fenton Hall once again wrote his wife, Mary Jane, from his camp in Rantowles, South Carolina — about ten miles east of Charleston along the Charleston and Savannah Rail Road. He indicates that the Sixth S.C. Cavalry would soon be returning to Adams Run, S.C. This letter is full of discussion about current war conditions in Charleston and particularly information about Boyd and Hall family members as well as friends from the Diamond Hill section who are in the army.
