Civil War letter to Ella Melendy

John Fuller wrote this letter the day before he and his twin brother were officially discharged from the army. Because of red tape and the slowness of the system, it will take several days before it can become official, and it will require that they travel to New York City. Once there, although they will be officially civilians, they will march in that city's enormous 4th of July parade. That parade was a celebration not only of independence but of Union victory in the nation's bloodiest war.
