On February 21, 1863 Daniel Boyd wrote his father, Robert Boyd, from his camp in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Rumors held that the Seventh S.C. would soon be moving from their camp in Fredericksburg. They believed they would soon move to either Blackwater, Virginia or Charleston, South Carolina. Daniel hoped they were going to Charleston. He also mentions having watched 26 Federal regiments leaving on trains across the river.
