22nd New York Infantry – Francis Aubin, An Amazing Artist Writes On Great Magnus Patriotic Stationery with Patriotic Envelope, A Letter to His Sister with Some of His Original Artwork – He Would Die 8 Months Later at South Mountain
Writing from “Head Quarters 22 Regt. N.Y.R. Camp Auger Upton Hill, Virginia Jan 2nd, 1862”, Francis Aubin who enlisted at Glens Falls, New York on 5/7/61, writes his sister. The letter has cute content… be sure to read our transcription. The letter is 4-pages in easily read ink and on a 5th page, a P.S. with a pen and ink sketch of his tent named “Soldier Joy” and an amazing drawling of his “Jeff Davis” hat insignia. Beside these two images is a very tiny addressed envelope. The writing on the envelope is so small that it doesn’t look humanly possible! With the letter is a patriotic envelope “The War for the Union”, picturing George Washington, flags, and “Patriot of ‘76”.

One of the most amazing soldier art letters we have had… and poor Frank Aubin would be killed at South Mountain on September 14th, 1862.
