Just in andy o connor and andrew thomas receive a letter from home

Just in….Andy O’Connor and Andrew Thomas receive a letter from home.

Part 1

June 7th, 1861

Oneida, TN

Scott County, TN

 Dear Cousin Andy,

  I hope thiz letter finds you good. I know you done decided to move up par to Kentucky to fight with the Union just in case there is a war once you done heard South Carolina seceded. I just wanted to give you news of what is happenin with your kin folk. I know you and Couz Erin hate to see the nation plum cut in two. Most of yer East Tennessee brothers feel the way you do. I shore do hate to be the one to inform you, but Tennessee done decided today to secede the Union and join the Confederacy. It is a sad day for us here in Oneida. Our own US Senator from Tennessee, Andrew Johnson is opposed to secession, but no one listened to him. He said that Tennesseans are committin treason!!!

After Tennessee was the last state to secede, Scott County even said they wanted to break away from Tennessee and form their own state!!! I can’t believe it has come to this.

I am not sure what I will do fight for my home state or go with my feller citizens of the county. I will tell you what I decide later. I will make sure Erin and your younguns are all save and sound. Maybe there will not be a war. If there is, hopefully it will be a quick war.

Your dearest cousin,
