Tully Graybill of Oconee Georgia, Colonel of the 28th Georgia Regiment wrote letters to his wife..Portions are as follows: James Island, SCSeptember 18, 1863 I am very weary tonight on account of a little over half the regiment was sent to Battery Wagner a week ago tonight. They were to have been relieved Friday night but it was impossible both then and last night on account of the heavy firing kept up by the enemy. York Town Virginia April 14, 1862 ...again last night at eleven o'clock we were ordered to take position very near the enemy as soon as we took position the Yanks sent us a few messengers in the shape of rifle shells to inform us that we had advanced as far as they would bear it quietly and as we had gone as far as we were ordered we halted and kept our arms in our hands all night. Their shells passed over our heads....They cannot see our camp if it can be called a camp. When we lie down on the hill side with the broad canopy of the heavens to cover us with short allowance of wood for fire we have a frost every morning, but we stand that very well if it does not snow or rain that very nearly makes us all sick.
