25. [Civil War]. Hungerford, Charles. Union Army soldier. Enlisted on 26 April 1861 at Schenectady, New York as a private, and was mustered into company A, 18th New York Volunteers. Exceptional Civil War-date autograph letter signed ("Chas. Hungerford"), 4 pages (8 x 10 in.; 203 x 254 mm.), dated "1861" [late July - early August, 1861] from Washington, D.C. Written to a friend from home, Adam Rickard. In fine condition. Hungerford pens in part: ...I suppose you have heard of the Battle at Bulls run...I was thair on that field for 11 hours and sharper shoting and tawler running you never saw in your life. I was wonded in the leg just above the nee. Its nothing to get hot shot but the worst is to get over it. It was a terble sight to see the wonded ded and dying...The bulits flew thicker and faster than the rain drops in a storm...I wish you could have seen the fire Zuvase [Zouaves] of Elsworth Thay fought like wild beast of the woods. Thay would mount enmys battry and cry out rember Elsworth and fling with charged baynets right through thair ranks and then back again... An extraordinary war-date letter including testimony of the courageous enthusiasm shown by the vaunted Fire Zouaves, who were more than a match for their Confederate counterparts. $400 - $600
