Letter from Benjamin Bloomfield concerning the Battle of Vinegar Hill

A handwritten copy and a typed copy of a letter from Benjamin Bloomfield, New Ross, Co. Wexford to 'my dear Tom' describing his experience during the Battle of Vinegar Hill.

Within the letter Benjamin describes the battle, 'They appeared as insensible of danger as if there really had not been the least, they were so desperate as to march up in the face of my gun several times, tho' I was supported by strong detachments of Infantry.' He also discusses his sadness at being separated from his wife Harriet.

Bloomfield, Benjamin
