Overview

El Paso, His Final Destination: This true story is a compilation of letters that were written by, and received by, a young man in the time frame of 1864 to 1894. by Roger B Pratt

Each letter reflects his daily life and surroundings in fascinating detail. Beginning when this seventeen year old young man from Vermont joins the Vermont militia and enters the Civil War. After serving ten months and rising to the rank of Corporal, the war ends. He is mustered out and returns temporarily to Vermont. This extremely ambitious and curious individual decides to leave home and starts his westerly journey. He ventures through seven western states, one territory, and Mexico, holding various positions in sixteen different occupations. He spends the last five years of his life in El Paso, Texas, as President of his El Paso Transfer Company business. His journey ends with his death from diabetes at the age of forty seven. Misspelled words were not corrected in the transition from the original letters to typed book pages to preserve the authenticity and character of the letters. Copies of original letters with envelopes, and certain documents, are included after certain typed book pages to show the interesting letter heads and envelopes.
