The letters of Capt. Henry F. Young, 7th WI, include an 8-4-64 letter stating: "The men are beginning to Show their old life and animation last evening they had a game of ball."

This refers to baseball while in the Petersburg trenches.  The letter appears on p. 251 with a lengthy annotation on 253n31, of the book "Dear Delia."
