Joseph H. Hubbard Letter, PC.1934

Abstract

Joseph Hendley Hubbard (1841-1871) was a Civil War soldier who served in two different units before his election as lieutenant in the Sampson Artillery, commanded by his uncle, Captain Abner A. Moseley. This manuscript letter, dated February 7, 1863, was written by Hubbard at Fort Caswell while serving in the 2nd Artillery. Addressed to Hubbard's stepmother, the letter informs her that his uncle (her brother, Lt. Abener A. Moseley) was to leave the fort on the following day to return to their home plantations the Sampson County slaves that had been impressed by the state to erect and repair the network of Cape Fear River fortifications below Wilmington.
