Abstract:
Manuscript letter dated April 5, 1865, written aboard the U.S. Steamer Santiago de Cuba by U.S. Navy Assistant Surgeon Aaron S. Oberly. In the four-page letter, Oberly describes his stay at Havana, Cuba, and discusses the people, the climate, the music, and the activity on the roads and docks of the city. He refers to seeing a blockade runner flying a Confederate flag and mentions that his own ship had "left last Saturday night the harbor of Charleston." The letter is addressed to "Maria," probably Maria A. Woodford of New Haven, Connecticut. ( English, inglés )
