April 1861

The war started yesterday and Thomas left to take up his command.  My heart is broken in two with my Thomas gone.  I have not stopped crying since he left yesterday.  I’ll be traveling to Louisville soon to stay with his family there.  The world I am living in is changing too fast.  I want my Thomas back with me so we can start the family we have been talking about.  We have been married less than a month and already we are separated.  I hope this war ends quick, Thomas comes home quick, he is safe, and we can be together again and then babies, lots of babies.  .  Last month when we were married I never knew I could love someone this much and my heart could ache this much with him gone.  He is my heart and soul.
