James R. Tice Letters (Ms2003-006)


The correspondence of James R. Tice, a Confederate soldier in Company B, 42nd Virginia Infantry during the American Civil War, consist of three letters written to his sister (Martha A. previous hit Tice next hit Light) and brother-in-law (Jim Light) during the war. Written from camps near Romney (January 18, 1862), Port Republic (June 15, 1862) and Guinea Station (April 21, 1863), the letters focus primarily upon personal and family matters. Brief mentions are made of the battles of Cross Keys and Port Republic, as well as the death of Turner Ashby. Tice discusses in somewhat greater detail the withdrawal of Union forces from Romney and the many provisions captured by the Confederates there. He also briefly discusses the war-time prices of various goods.
