PA Civil War Volunteer Soldiers' Diaries
Removal Request for Lieutenant Flannagan
133rd Regiment, Company F Cambria County, Pennsylvania
To Lieut. Francis Flannagan - Dear Sir: --
We, the undersigned, members of Captain John M. Jones' Company, do hereby announce that it is the unanimous wish of all to have a change in the command of our company. We are all desirous to place a person who will be capable to instruct us in the manual of arms in the office of Second Lieutenant. We do not, by any means, bear any disrespectful feeling towards you, because we are compelled to request you to resign. But knowing your incapability to discharge the duties required of you, we are thus forced to do so.
Hoping that you will not bear any ill-feeling toward us for our present action, we will close our remarks by once more declaring our unanimous wish that you will resign your office, so as to enable us to place a competent person to teach us the duties which we, as private soldiers, must at some future day discharge.
