I am Private Clarence Parsons. I have joined the army and thank the lord I am doing just fine. Although this is only the beginning, I already miss my family. My loving mother.. Who is going to wake me up every morning for breakfast now? Certainly not her.. And my father, I miss him far too much, although sometimes strict, always loving. And then there are my three brothers, I know my oldest brother is taking care of the family but pray nothing happens to him or to any of them. The uniforms aren’t the best but then again they aren’t the worst. As an abolitionists, I hope that the wretched Confederacy understands that they are sinning with their cruel acts of slavery. I pray this war will end swiftly and I will return home soon.
