Excerpt from Confederate Veteran, 1908, Vol. 16

I was wounded and lay on the field from p.m. Sunday to 4 rm. Monday. I had an interesting conversation with a cannoneer with his caissons, whose guns were planted up on the divide, I supposed. They left that position about four o'clock. This cannoneer told me they had come up from Mobile, and he seemed to be taking a very cheerful view of their success, and I thought he had cause for it. He asked me if we had no lands up North on which to live and build up homes that we should come down to drive the Southern people from their homes and take their property. I told him if what of the South I had seen was a fair specimen I wouldn't know how to go to work on it to make a living if I possessed it all. He seemed surprised and said: Well, what did you come for I tried to show him that we came to stop seces sion and save the Union. I am sure we each understood the other better after our little talk. I know I soon realized that he was as honest in his convictions as I was, and that he was fighting for home and fireside, and I felt that he who would not fight from his point of view was no man at all.

I would like to know how long that battery remained there and if there were any Union infantry immediately in front nearer than the Bloody Pond.

A little grinning negro rode behind an empty saddle the most beautiful horse I thought I had ever seen. I almost coveted his mount, and wished myself far away from those unpleasant surroundings.
