Letter from L. B. Stephens of Center, Alabama, Regarding Experience in War Between the States.

L. B. Stephens, of Center, Ala., now in his seventy-seventh year, says he wants the VETERAN to keep coming as long as he lives. He writes: "I belonged to Wheeler's Cavalry, Martin's Division, Morgan's Brigade, 12th Alabama Cavalry, Company F; was in the siege at Knoxville, Tenn., and went on the raid raid to Atlanta, Ga., on August 10, 1864, through East and Middle Tennessee, crossed Tennessee River at Mussel Shoals, Ala., behind the Yankee lines for eight weeks, tearing up railroad tracks and all other government property. I would like for some one to write the full details of our raid behind the enemy's lines."
