"...i will put lead in yo god dam your hell fired soll..."-- Part 1

I found this in the July 29, 2013, UNC Library This Day in the Civil War." Quite interesting and showing a part of the war that is not usually reported. It was a letter dated July 29, 1863, from Wilse Dial, James Dial and Calvin Dial, three Unionists, probably in the mountains of Tennessee or North Carolina. It is addressed to Captain Quil Hunter, possibly a Confederate conscription officer, threatening retaliation against attempts to find them. I lefty the spelling just as it was written. Old Secesh
