Wisconsin Soldiers in the Southwest -- Report
from Mrs. Harvey.
SOLDIERS' HOME, VICKSBURG, Dec. 18, '64.
Hon. J. T. Lewis, Governor of Wisconsin:
DEAR SIR: Having just returned from New Orleans and from intervening points, where I have been visiting, I have the pleasure to report to you the improved condition of all troops in this Department. Our recent victories and the cold weather have given energy and health to our armies.
The U.S. Sanitary Commission at New Orleans is doing a noble work. Its agents, so far as I can learn, are, without exception, honest, efficient and working men. The different sanitary depots are well supplied with goods, and I believe that our friends at the North will see that this supply is not lessened. At Baton Rouge they have a large hospital, in a building formerly as Orphan Asylum--about eight hundred patients.
When we came up the river we brought a large supply of goods for this place, and left an agent to distribute them. Every soldier able to do service in the field went with the army on the 14th of November. Their destination was unknown. The convalescent and sick were left in camp and hospital. -- They will be well cared for, and many will soon be able to take the places of those who may sicken or full in this campaign. Yesterday some three hundred and fifty able bodied men went down the river on board the Government transport "Baltic"; a large proportion were from Wisconsin regiments. Many of them had not a change of clothing for weeks. I supplied them, for they have no money.
The Wisconsin troops in this Department were the 11th infantry, at Brashier City, a short distance from New Orleans; 20th, at Dauphin Island; 29th, at Memphis; 35th, up White River; 23d, at Paducah; 4th cavalry, at Baton Rouge; also the 1st and 13th batteries, and Co. D, 1st Heavy ARtillery, at Berwick city. The 2d cavalry have just left Vicksburg for Memphis. Gen. Dana has also gone, and Maj. Gen. Washburne, from our State is here.
I visited the hospitals in New Orleans. Several have been closed. The Marine, University, Barracks, and St. Louis are the only ones in operation at present, and they have but few patients.
I send you a report of Wisconsin men in those hospitals, also a report of the deaths in the largest hospitals (Barracks and Marine). Reports of deaths from other hospitals were sent me, but by some mistake I did not receive them.
If there is any other field in which I can do more good, I am willing to go.
C.A.P. Harvey, State Agent.
