He Rode with Jeb Stuart
GEORGE F. MILLER, 97, of Oklahoma Confederate Home, dating his letter Friday has this to say to the Daily Ardmoreite:
“I am still clinging ton to the old world by a slim hold and interested and worried about the war and wish I was as well as I was 75 years ago and could help our country chastise the conceited yellow men and I have no love for Germany either.I still remember some…. I am the only Confederate veteran that claims this as home. Several of the old boys visit the home occasionally. General HARRIS is here now on a visit but he calls Oklahoma City home. I was a real soldier a little over a year and had a hard time with Gen. J. E. B. STUART’s cavalry which was always on the move, winter and summer. I suffered from the cold in the mountains of northern Virginia in 1864 and in January and February of 1865. That was worse than the battles.”
