Manuscripts/Mixed Material Letter from Tilton C. Reynolds to Juliana Smith Reynolds, June 20, 1864
Camp of 105 P.V.V.
Near Petersburg Va
We are Still in front of Petersburg but have not yet got possession of the City though I think it will fall ere long. We had a hard charge night before last in which we lost heavy. Capt Conser was wounded though not fatally. Jones is all right. Co H lost none killed. We are in the front line only about 100 yds from the Rebs. We keep pelting it into them all the time So they dont hardly Stick their heads about the pits. We moved last night to this place & built the works. There is no line between us picket or anything else. I was out yesterday & fired Some 40 or 50 rds at the Johnnys. I also give them a few today.
Uncle John is all right. I will close. We are to be relieved from the front to night. Dont fret about me. Good By
[P.S.] High Private
