Post About Port Tobacco From Elsewhere

Today, a Civil War blogger posted a letter about Port Tobacco, written in 1863. This is the second Charles Bates letter written from Port Tobacco to be posted on the Crossed Sabers bl The first letter is here.

According to Charles Bates, he and his company took up residence in the courthouse, almost exactly 145 years ago. He describes the courthouse as newly painted and renovated but describes the rest of the town as "played out".
