I’ve just recorded three of Henry A. Allen’s letters as we wind down to the end of the collection. This is among the most interesting set, as Allen considers the gravity of signing a loyalty oath in the wake of the surrender of the two major Confederate armies east of the Mississippi River. Only when he feels the Confederate cause is truly lost does he consent to sign the oath and thus be released from prison. Have a listen…all three letters appear in this one episode of…The Civil War Letters of Henry A. Allen
