In the title, “A slain patriot, a historic letter and the push to preserve a NJ battlefield” of an article by Jerry Carino for Asbury Park Press, the words “historic letter” caught my eye.  The image of the letter got me to read, but about half-way down, there is a line about this being the only surviving record of what an American soldier carried on his person into battle. In this case, the Battle of Princeton, and for three days I have not been able to recall seeing such a letter in all my research.

Very interesting, Enjoy,
