Here is the letter from July 1861 that was written home by Reuben Huntley:
Of the 11 men killed at Turner's Gap from the 6th Wisconsin, Reuben Huntley was one of them. It's a shame that if this was his last opportunity to see home before heading east, that he was not able to because of events elsewhere. He would lose his life fighting to save the Union in a field hundreds of miles from home. Maybe it's just me, but the one line in his letter forshadow's his eventual death on the battlefield. May he rest in peace.
