Inventory of the C. D. Epps Papers, 1 862- 1 9 1 5 Page 2 of 4 



Abstract 

Commodore D. Epps enlisted as a private in Company F, 6th Georgia Cavalry Regiment, on 
20 June 1862. He saw action at the Battle of Perryville, Ky., 8 October 1862, and at the Battle of 
Chickamauga, Ga., 18-20 September 1863. Epps died on 15 December 1863 of wounds he 
received at Chickamauga. The collection consists of 15 letters, 1862-1863, from C. D. Epps with 
the 6th Georgia Cavalry Regiment in Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, chiefly to his wife, 
Catherine S. Epps, at the family farm, probably in Murray County, Ga. In the letters, Epps gave 
his wife instructions for managing the farm, chiefly what to plant and who to hire to perform tasks 
like making new fences; requested goods from home, like boots, clothing, and, above all, a 
substitute; and described camp life and battles, especially the Battle of Perryville. Some of the 
letters contain messages for his children, mother, and other family members. Epps wrote the last 
letter, dated 13 November 1863, from Polk Hospital in Rome, Ga., where he was brought for 
treatment of wounds suffered at Chickamauga. In this letter, Epps anticipated coming home, but 
he died shortly after writing it. Also included are photocopies of segments of 6th Georgia Cavalry 
Regiment muster rolls relating to Epps; Catherine S. Epps's 1864 claim as widow of C. D. Epps; a 
portion of the 1870 census showing Catherine S. Epps resident in Spring Place, Ga.; and a 1915 
statement of C. D. Epps's Confederate army service from the commisioner of pensions, Atlanta, 
Ga.

August the 3, 1862 



Direct your letter to Tunnel 

Hill, Smith's Legion in care of Captain Anderson, 

Camp Smith, Whitfield, GA. 

Dear wife, I take my pen in hand to let 

you know that I am well at this time and 

hope these few lines will come safe to 

your hands and find you and all the 

rest enjoying the same blessing. I have 

nothing of importance to write to you. I received 

your kind letter. I was glad to here from 

you all and that you all was well. 

Catherine, I have a notion to go to Richmond 

to Hugin(?) Company. I can get $50 dollars 

to change with Van Cints' brother and I 

had rather be in a foot company. I want 

you and all the rest to write whether you 

are willing or not. Catherine, I haven't drawn 

any bounty yet and I don't no whether 

I ever will or not. I don't know when we 

will leave here. I want you to write to 

me if you have had any news from Hamp (?) 

Ridley and what he is doing; whether he is 

a wagoneer or not. For Cints is a wagoneer 

and I am to have his place if I go. 

Catherine, you wrote to me to write to you 

about managing. You know best now. Do the 

best you can to make something to eat 

and if I can help you I will do it. 



1 don't know when I shall get any money, 
but when I do you shall have part 

of it if I live. Catherine, if you can get 
anybody to come in my place on 
reasonable terms, do it. Tell mother and all 
the rest to write to me. I want to 
hear from you often. They was 3 men 
went home the other day to get substitutes 
in their place. Manuel McCoy(?) went 
home to get him a substitute. If you get 
anybody, you come with them to the 
camps. I would like to see you if I 
could. I had a smuthering(?) this day was 

2 weeks ago and I thought I would die, 
but I sent for — (?) and he eased 
me. I am well as common now. If you 
want to come to see me you can come 
to your daddy's and I will try to get 

4 or 5 furloughs and come up there. If 
you want to come, star(?) a letter from 
there and tell me when you will be 
there to a day. If you want to come 
you had better be in a hurry. Tell all 
my friends to write to me. Catherine, do 
the best you can. I must dose, 
nothing more at present. Only remains 
yours truly until death. God bless 
you. 

C. D. Epps to Catherine Epps 



Send me some of your hair.

Camp Smith, Whitfield County August the 10, 1862 



Dear wife, I tal<e my pen in hand to let you 

know that I am well at this time. Hoping these 

few lines may come safe to hand and find 

you and all of the rest of both families well 

and friends. I have nothing of importance to 

write to you. I received my bounty yesterday. I 

would like for you to come to your daddy's as 

quick as you could and fetch my boots, and a pair 

of pants on the heels (?), and a fine comb, and a 

hand towel. We are talking of leaving here but 

I don't know when It may be before you could 

get here but if you feel disposed to start 

on the circumstances. Write me a letter as soon 

as you get done reading this. Send it to Blairsville (?) 

post office and mail it and state when 

you will be there. I have no chance of sending 

any money now. If you come I will try to meet 

you there if we don't leave here before you can 

come, and if you don't come I will send 

you some money as soon as I can get a 

chance. I want you to have work carried 

on and try to make all you can. Seed 

down all of the corn land in wheat and 

rye. Fored (?) go and buy rye now and lay it in 

5 bushels. Anything you need get it. Polear (?) 

and Willie and Henry and Alford; I want 

you all to be good boys and mind your 



Mother and see how much work you 
can do. Catherine, I want you to get 
somebody to help build that fence on 
the mountain and let the boys be a 
clearing it up. Commence (?) in time if you do 
come. Let me have a letter so I will know when 
to meet you if I can and if I can't you can 
see your folks and go home. Do this in a 
hurry if you undertake it. There is running 
thousands of soldiers down toward Chatanooga. 
They are expecting a fite. All of our neighbors 
is well. I want you to write me all the news. 
Catherine, I will send you a shin plaster (?). Nick 
Hulander said he would pay you corn for 
what he owed me 45 cts. Gather up all your 
little debts, tend to my hides. Put them in 
new bark. Tend to old Darb. Save all the feed 
you can. Tend to your hogs and cattle. So I 
must come to a close. Nothing more at present. 
Only remains yours truly til' death. C. D. Epps 
to Catherine Epps. Dear mother and brother, 
sisters and uncle, I am well at this time. 
Hoping these few lines may find you all well 
and doing well. I want you all to write 
to me often. Direct your letters to Tunnel 
Hill, Whitfield County, GA in care of Captain 
Anderson, Smith's Legion.

I 



Camp Smith, Whitfield 

Dear wife and children, mother and sisters, 

brother and uncle. I take my pen in hand 

to let you know that I am well at this 

time. Hoping these few lines may come safe 

to hand and find you all enjoying the same 

blessing. I received your kind letter. I was glad 

to hear that you was all well. I can inform 

you that we have to leave this place. We 

are going to Louden, Tennesee. We start a 

Tuesday morning the 19th. We have drawn our 

arms: double barrel shotguns, caterey boxes(?), 

haver sacks, canteens, saddle bags, bridals, halters, 

and some has drawn cavalry saddles. 

Catherine, I sent you $20 dollars by Thomas 

Butt. I would have sent you more but 

cold weather will be here directly and I 

want me an overcoat. I will buy me an overcoat 

and I want you to make the balance 

of my clothes against cold weather. 1 pair socks, 

I pair gloves, 1 pair pants. Catherine, i want you 

to send my boots as soon as you can. Catherine, 

it takes a heap of money here to do a man's 

washing. Tobacco .50 a plug, paper $1.75 . I don't 

know when I will draw any more money. All 

the boys has been in three months and has 

not drawn their wages yet. Catherine, if anybody 

wants to take my place and take 

that lot and $75 dollars you come with 

them to the camps. When we get to Louden 

we will be nearer home than here. It is one 

hundred miles from here to Louden. Catherine, 

I sent vou a seventy five cents in a 

letter. I will send you 50 cents in stamps. 

I will send you some change to lift my letters 

50 cents. I would like to see you mighty well 

if I could. I want you to see Siles Ledfor (Silas Ledford ?) and 

tell him to pay that money to you and 

you pay it to Mother and credit her note $2.50. 

Then put down in my day book $2.50 cents on 

Ledford's note. Look at the note that Mother 

has and see the credit and put down the day 

and the date in the day book where I have the 

balance what I had recieved. The news is said 

to be that all men who has been discharged 

has to come back into service unless been 

discharged by the Secretary of War. I don't 



know the certainty of it. Catherine, I want you 
and my folks to write to me often. Show the 
letter to them. All write together. Write me all 
the news and I will do the same. All do the 
best you can. I must come to a close by 
saying I remains yours truly 'till death. 

C. D. Epps

Camp Breckenridge, Kentucky 
October the 13, 1862. Dear 
wife, I take my pen in hand 
to let you know that I am 
well at this time. Hoping 
these few lines will come 
safe to hand and find you 
all well. I can say to you 
that I have been in a little 
skirmish fight. I fired five 
rounds at the yankees and 
the bullets whistled all 
'round my head and the bombs 
fell all round us. They was 
a pretty heavy loss on both 
sides. The fight was at Perryville. 
We retreated from there 
to our camp in order to 
keep them from our camps. 
They are all 'round here. We 
are still having little fighting 
'round here. We expect a heavy 
attack and it will be /f /i ejW^ 



you the straight of it if 

I come through. I don't know 

whether I will or not, but 

I am in hopes I will. I want 

you to do the best you can 

and I will do the same. Don't 

be uneasy about me. 

I want you to write to me 

all the news. I have not 

got time to write as much 

as I want to write. I am 

in hopes we will whip 

them. Direct your letters 

by the way of Knoxville 

to Camp Breckenridge near 

Frankfurt, Kentucky, Smith's 

Legion in care of Captain 

Anderson. Write to me often. 

I must come to a close by 

saying I remains yours truly 

'Til death. Write whether you

Cumberland Gap, Oct. 25, 1862 
Dear Wife, 

I take my pen In hand to let you know that I am well 
at this time. Hoping these few lines may come safe 
to hand and find you all doing well. I have not drawn 
any money yet. If I had it would be a good chance to 
send it to you by Jonathan Plott. 

I want you to buy corn now. If you think you will not 
have enough to do. I want you to have plenty to do. 
Now is the time to get It. Try to fix to make more. 
Maybe I will be home sometime. Make all the corn 
(whiskey) you can. I sent $5 by Charley Jenson... 

There is a bigger mountain here than I ever saw. We 
have been in Kentucky... had a good deal of fighting 
to dc.balls whistling all around... We had 5 or 6 
wounded.. .1 man killed.... 



Georgia, Union County 
December 21, 1862 

Dear wife, I take my pen 
in hand to let you know 
that I am well at this 
time. Hoping these few lines 
may come safe to hand and 
find you and all the rest 
enjoying the same blessing. 
I can say to you that 
we are not going to start 
til' after Christmas. I 
am sorry that I did not 
know it, I could have stayed 
with you a few more days. 
I got a pair of shoe leathers 
and a pair of half soles 



I paid $3 and 50 cents 
for the leather. I am going 
To make me a new pair of 
shoes and take with me 
and I am going to half 
sole and patch my boots. 
I have got nary blanket 
But i will have 
one before I leave. Charley 
paid me $5 dollars. I got 

my watch from (?). He 

said Suten (?) charged $ 6 dollars 
and he told Mike that 
Suten charged $5 and 50 cents 
and Ruben (?) charged 50 cents 
for going after it. I paid 




him $5 dollars and 
I will pay him the 
balance when Charley 
pays me the balance. I 
will take with me for 
fear I will need it. I 
Sent and got that 
knife and nine balls and 
he claimed the knife but 
he sent it to me. He asked 
if I was at home. Maren (?) 
told him I was. He says 
well if I was a mind 
to tell a lie about 
it he would send them 
to me. He is a rascal. He 
said I give him the knife 



but I did not give him 
The balls. I sent him 
word back that he was 
a infernal liar, that I 
had give him the rest of 
the things as much as the 
knife. I give Jason the durk(?) 
knife and that knife I got 
from you for his knife. 
Catherine, I want you to 
write to me as soon as you 
get this and put them 
watch keys in the letter. 
Direct your letter to Mill 
Creek. Catherine, I am sorry 
that I did not stay longer 
but I did not know. God bless 




you.

Georgia, Union County 

Dear wife, I take my pen in liand to 

let you know tliat I am well at 

this time. Hoping these few lines may 

come safe to hand and find you and 

all the rest well. I can say to you 

that Charley paid me five dollars and 

he won't pay me any more. Rube Pritchard 

is going to move to Tennesee. Charley 

would not pay him and come to me and 

I paid him five dollars that you owed 

him. I paid him six dollars for the fixing 

the watch. I paid one dollar and fifty cents 

to Go (George ?) Plott for a quart of brandy. I paid 

two dollars a coming up here. I paid three 

dollars and a half for leather. I have 

paid out eighteen dollars and received 

five. I have got nine dollars and a half 

left. I haven't got nary blanket yet. 

I have tried the whole country but 

I think I can get one from John Boone (?), 

a good one for eight dollars. I am going 

to see him day after tomorrow. He has 

two. He said he would sell me one for 

eight dollars. It will take all the money 

I have but one dollar and fifty cents. 

Catherine, I don't expect to start 'til 

the tenth of next month. Captain 

Anderson is not 'til then. He says we 

will all go together. Catherine, I am 

sorry that I did not stay longer with 

you, but I did not know they was going 

to stay so long. Catherine, I think 

you might come up and see me before I 

start. If you do come, fetch me five dollars 

and them watch keys and a box of 

caps and if Wesley will take a dollar 

and a half for that locket fetch it. 

Catherine, don't think that I run off 

on purpose to keep from staying with 

you. I want to see you mighty bad. If 

I had known they was going to stay 

so long when I first came up here 

I should have come back there. Catherine, 

if you take the notion to come, start 

as soon as you get these lines. I seen 



Harelson about that salt. He said 
it would be here in a few days. Catherine, 
Elliot Collins wife is dead and Columbus 
Spurllng's wife and child is dead. I 
Shall look for you, whether I see you 
or not. If you come, start as soon 
as you get these lines. I must come to 
a close by saying I remain yours 
truly until death. 

C. D. Epps 

Mikes and Peters is all well as 
far as I know. Peter has not started 
yet. I do not know when he will. 
Mike said it might be that he would 
stay 'til his captain goes. His captain 
is at home.

Louden, Tennesee 

Dear wife, I take my pen in 
iiand to let you l<now that I 
am well at this time. Hoping 
those few lines may come 
safe to hand and find you 
and the children and all the 
rest well and doing well. I have 
nothing of importance to write 
to you. I received two letters from 
you stating that you was 
well. I was glad to hear it. I 
wrote you a letter dated the 17 of 
this instant with 50 cents in 
it. Write whether you got it or 
not. Our captain has resigned 
and is going home shortly. He is 
going to sell his horses. I will 
be afoot. Write to me whether 
you could do without old Darb 
or not. In haste, I can buy one 
here by paying a big price. I don't 
want to disfurnish you. I expect 



so I could give it to you. 

I want you to write what arrangements 

you have made about 

salt. I sent 5 dollars off to 

get 50 pounds of salt for you. 

I told mother to get it and pay 

for the hauling and save it for 

you. She said she would do so. I gave 

Mike an order to draw your 20 pounds. 

He said he would do so. We are 

stationed here at Louden. I don't 

know how long we will stay here. 

We have got good tents. We 

get plenty of corn bread and 

beef and bacon, rice, sugar, and 

salt peas. We fare pretty well here. 

I want you to write to me where 

Washington is stationed at and 

how to direct a letter to him 

and also Peter the same. 

Did you hear taht Peters regiment 

was taken prisoners or did you 

our battalion (?). Tom Satefield heard 



Peter Mack Danel (McDaniel ?) will be 
our captain. You wrote to me to 
write to you the straight of that 
little rally that our boys had 
across the mountain. They had 
been out on a scout and lay 
down and took their rest and 
did not put out any pickets 
and the yankees came on them 
next morning and fired on them 
while they was getting their 
breakfast and charged upon 
them and took about 50 of 
them prisoners and about 60 
horses. They got Bill Hulander, 
Columbus Spurlin (Spurling ?) and killed 
Joe Saterfieid and the sargent 
major. I could name several others 
but these were in our settlement. 
They was but 2 killed. I would 
send you some money but I 
am afraid to risk it. I would 
be glad that I could see you 

from Jim. He said nothing about 
it. Write to me whether the old 
man bought that place or not 
and whether you are going to stay 
in the house with your father 
or not. I want the boys to work good 
and make a big pile of corn 
and ask me to the shucking. 
Sarah, I saw your old man. He 
is well. Catherine, send me them 
watch keys if you please. I have 
Got a watch and no key. I can't 
but nary key. I have tried every 
place. Send me that watch cord 
the first chance and buy that 
locket and send It too. Catherine, 
I would be glad the war 
would stop so I could come home 
and stay with you. I am in 
hopes the time will soon roil 
'round. Direct your letter to Louden, 
Tennesee. Nothing more at present, 
only remains yours. C. D. Epps

Louden, Tennesee 



Dear wife, i take tlie pleasure 
of dropping you a few lines to 
inform you that I am not 
well. I have a mighty pain in 
my eye. My command is gone 
to Ashville, Buncom (?) Co. They 
started yesterday morning and 
I was sent here to the hospital. 
We have good fare here. Catherine, 
don't be uneasy. I received 
two letters from you. I was 
not able to answer them. 
I don't know how long I will 
stay here. I expect 'til my eye 
gets well, then I will 
go to the boy (?). Write to 
me whether there Is a nag 
could be bought or not. Nothing 
more at present. Only remains 
yours truly until death.

May 6, 1863 



Dear wife, I take the opportunity 

of writing you a few lines to 

let you know that I am well at 

this time. Hoping these few lines 

may come safe to hand and 

find you enjoying the 

same blessing. I have nothing 

of importance to write. I do not 

know when I will leave here. I can 

say to you that Ellerd(?) Did 

not mistreat me. He got me transportation 

to the camp of instruction .. 

and sent me there ; < 

without a guard. He said no ; 

one had not told that 

I had tried to keep out of 

the way. He said the way it 

started. He asked Killgro (?) If 




home about two weeks and 
Had been passing the road and 
knocking about 'mong the people. 
I am in very good heart. I think 
I will get to go to my command 
in a few days. I heard from 
Tinesly(?) Epps. A man come from 
there a few days ago and seen 
Lige Teague(?) and told him that 
He was in California and was 
well. Lige is here and told me 
you need not to write 'til 
you hear from me again. 
So I will come to a close 
By saying I remain yours 
truly until death. ;

Dear wife, I take my pen in hand

you all enjoying the same blessing. 
I can say to you that I have 
got to my command. I got 
here yesterday. I would have written 
sooner, but I did not know how 
long I would be at a place. 
The yankees is on the other side 
of the mountain. They captured 
/ two of our pickets the other 
day and wounded one. I am 
going to buy me a horse. I have 
to but or go to the infantry. 
Boys, make all the corn you can. 
Write to me all the news.

at Knoxville but I don't care for 

it. I fared splendid. My command
