Hogan: June 3, 1863
Camp near Falmouth Va.
June 3rd 1863
I take the present opportunity of pening you a few lines. I am well as could be expected. I seen your Uncle Tom before the late battle, but I have not seen him since. If you have heard from him since the battle let me know for I am anxious to hear from him. I have not heard from home in some time. I have wrote them twice since I have received a letter from them.
I am at present detailed at Col. Brooks Head Quarters and I have a good deal easier than I have heretofore. Col. Brooks commands the brigade.
The Army are all quiet now laying in Camp. It is impossible to tell where, or when we will move. I dont think this Army will do much here this summer. In takeing out the 2 years and 9 months mor it makes quite a hole in the old Army of the Potomac.
Our pickets and the Rebel pickets talk across to one another nearly all the time they are quite friendly towards our pickets.
Write to me soon and let me know all the particulars Remember me to my Mother Sisters and Brothers.
Hd. Qrs. 4th Brig. 1st Div. 2nd Corps
PS) During the 8 days fight I was placed in a position at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville where I could see the most of the battle. There were some heartrendering sights, and such that I don't wish to see again
Let me know the address of Thomas McKeon
