Day 2 1861
Today I wrote a letter to my cousin in Texas.
Dear Sam, Today I got news of a battle that my father was in. I believe that he was involved with the battle of Lexington. They had fought and killed many people. Tensions have been brought up between the people. So they decided to solve this problem by fighting. My father may have been involved in it, but I am not for sure. We are having a difficult time maintaining the farm but we are trying to manage it. I will let you know if I find out anything.
