MORE MILTON A. HARDIN LETTERS
AND RELATED CIVIL WAR ERA LETTERS...
|...have fortunately been saved these 138-plus years, were transcribed from the originals by David Barth and his wife many years ago, and have been placed on a Website by a Hardin/Sloan descendant, Mark Jenkins of Comer, Gerorgia, cousin of Mr. Barth. His Web site is here .|
| Mark says on his website,
"These letters have been typed out letter for letter and word for word
so that they can be read easier."
"The original letters are in very rough condition and are difficult to read, some are torn and missing parts, others are stuck together and are impossible to seperate. The letters on this page are the only best ones of the group and I want to thank my cousin Jimmy Price for typing them out for preservation and sharing them with me so that I could share them with you. I realize that the integrity of these letters has been compromised to a degree, but we do have the originals and know for a fact that they are exact copies. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have and that these letters will give you a sense of the seriousness of the hardships our ancestors endured during this terrible time!"
|After reading the letters and comparing them with the Stewart version, I offer this suggested clarification of dates, in chronological order:|
