Where were the History Detectives when I needed them?

I just want to tell you that "History Detectives" is an absolutely amazing show!

Where were you when I was younger?

In '77 my dad was remodeling (our) house and found a letter dated 1861-62, a young soldier writing to his sweetheart. All that I remember about it is him speaking of a Lieutenant Getty and friends of his having "the fever". My dad placed the letter in a book and never saw it again. I think if your show had been around then, we might have had more of a consciousness about the value of the letter.

Dear Jay,

We too wish you still had that letter!
