Summary:This is a letter from Robert C. Foster III, son of Tennessee Senator Ephraim Foster, to his mother, dated June 16, 1846. Foster writes from his station in New Orleans, where he is the captain of a troop of Tennessee Volunteers during the Mexican-American War under the command of Colonel William Campbell. Foster reports that the soldiers are enjoying good health, though there has been one death, that of a man named McAdams from Shelbyville. He also talks extensively about public parades in New Orleans and how the Tennessee Volunteers are thought of as the finest troops to have passed through the city.
