Medley and Palestina

Excerpt from Medley and Palestina Counting service in war and in peace, I was six and a half years under the colors. I was in three storming parties, six days of field engagement, and thirty-seven days of siege duty, making forty-six days under fire. My chief regret with regard to this matter is that I could not take part in one of the greater battles, such as Gettysburg or Chickamauga. I am not only glad, but I am sincerely thankful that I did not miss Port Hudson and the final victories in the Shenandoah Valley. In the finishing fight there I was on the staff of General Emory, carrying various orders for him and one for General Sheridan. In "Under the Colors" there are souvenirs of several of my fighting days. "The Combat" refers to the engagement of Labadieville, or Georgia Landing, in Louisiana. "Forward" was suggested by an incident of Banks' first attempt to carry Port Hudson. "The Storming Column" sketches the night assault of June 19th, on the same fortress. "The Bloody Grove" is a recollection of a sanguinary struggle for a little woodland during Sheridan's battle of The Opequan. "Lost and Won" narrates a small part of what I saw in the famous fight of Cedar Creek. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
