F ui he L'a Hit C urler.;
The wuuadc<! Confederate.
a sicetoh or love a.n’D war.
Kirby Smith had entered Kenturkv
at the Lead of an invading’ host of
Confederate Soldiery. His well trained
infantry and almost peeilrss cavalry
gave promise of success to the mission
upon which iie had been sent bv the
functionaries whom he s- rved. It was
a bright day in early autumn, and the
snn slmne with a brilliancy unsurpass
ed even 13 Italy’s fair dune, that the
Confederate chieftain found himself
and followers upon the summit of what
is kuotvn as Big Hill, which overlooks
the beautiful and picturesque vallev
that forms the eastern boundary of the
famous Bine grass region. The scene
in the vallev was in some respects
siiniliar to that presented to view on
the 1 ill, but differed materially as to
the design of the warriors who were en
camped on its surface near the base of
the hill. They were Federal soldiers.
The Confederate General Had determ
ined to attempt the dislodgemei t of
the enemy in the valley, without which
fie could not penetrate the rich region
beyond ; and for this purpose lie or
dered Gen. Scott, with Ins fa nous brig
ade of cavalry, to proceed at once ? n I
assail them in front while he, in person,
would lead tiie infantry to his support.
Onward dashed the van which was Ld
by a voting lieutenant of the name of
Jackson, of Murfreesboro, Term. They
advanced rapidiy and with the precision
of Wfcll-di«cipiiued warriors to the on
slaught, but were not with a dc-adiy
vtdiey of musketry front the unerring
aim of their adversaries, which caused
them to recoil and fall back in disor
der. The attack was renewed the se*
eotid time with greater energy than the
first, but with no better success. —
Thus, after repeated assaults, in each of
which the assailants were repulsed
with heSvy loss, they silently with
drew' to aw ait the promised assistance,
it was soon ascertained, however, that
the urdu body of the infantry could not
be brought into action before the 1 >1"
iawing morning, and. as this delay
might enable the Federal commander
to pr icure reinforcements, and thus
lessen the chance of success the Con
federate chieftain determined as a last
i flT>rt to attempt a ff.tnk movement.
Accordingly an impetuous charge was
made miun the left flank of tlu» r»
which threw them into confusion, and,
being composed chiefly of ra\y levies,
all attempts made by the Federal offi
cers t i rally them were of no avail; a
r treat, was the only alternative left
them, which soon terminated in a com
plete rout. Thus was achieved one of
those victories which cost the lives of
many brave men, besides ’.he loss in
wounded, among whom was Lieut.
Jackson. In leading the charge which
turned tiv° enemy’s flank he n cei u ed a
ball to the left arm, completely shatter
ing the bone, and from loss of blood he
soon (eil from his horse and waslefioa
the field. Titus had ended the bloody
contest which is known tu history as
the battle of Richmond, Kv.
Thu enemy had fought hard, hut bad
'fought tu vain; ami at nightfall they
| retreated, broken and in con fusion,
j hoitv pursued by their victorious foe,
and many were made captives. As
night fell the full orbed moon soared
aloft and poured a flood of mellow light
upon the field of carnage. Over the
weird plains that intervene between
Big liill and Richmond, covered with
the wounded and dying, the battle fmg
of the South floated . proudly in tiie
fight of tiie calm September moon.
Among that gallant band of Federal
troopers, was a young captain of the
name of Grayhatn, whose home was
but a few miles distant from the scene
of the conflict iu*t described.
As Captain Gray ham lias a sister
who is tit-sillied to play a prominent
part in oar sketch, we will introduce
her to the reader's notice. Saliie Gray
ham, at th it time of which we write,
was a very worthy and amiable young
lady of eighteen summers, at whose
shrine of beauty and lovliness many
an ardent swain desired to kneel. On
the evening in which the memorable
battle just referred to was fought, iss
Gray liain, together with her mother,
set upon the veranda, in front ot their
stalely residence, in anxious
tion of snine*!'isilors who had promts
ed to eoine th itevening. Captain Gray
ha in had told liis sisler that he would
bring wii !i him to his home that evening
an esteemed friend, a young and hand
some Lieutenant that belonged to his
company. No wonder thei* s*’e gazed,
long and wistfully down the avenue
which led to the public highway ; no
wonder her mother gently reproved her
for plucking some flowers, in an absent
way, from the trailing vines that fes
tooned the portico ; and no it
she felt aggravated at her brother be
ing go and latory.
There are very fl. w, under similar
circumstances, but would have acted
as did Miss Gray bain on the occasion
referred to. While td'e and her moth
er were thus engaged, the tirst volley
of tnuskeirv was hearJ in the -opening
u: the ba me of Lichmond, which told
ion plainly that the work of carnage,
l!o;t was soon to deioge the beautiful
oi ins of H chnicvid with blood, had
commenced. Who can describe tiie
agonizing feelings of that mother, or
the look of deeo despair overspread
the countenance of that sister, when
the real truth dawned upon them? It
was with difficulty that Mrs. Grayhatn
could prevent Iter daughter from living;
to the field of carnage, to be uear that
brother through the sanguinary con
flict, to minis’er to his wants, should
he he wounded ; or should fate decree j
that his life be offered a sacrifice at his l
country’s altar, to secure his body and
consign it to its last renting place be-,
neuih the willow which grew fresh and
green in the old family cemetery. —
But by extracting a promise from her
mother that she might visit the battle j
field as soon as the carnage hud ceased, j
site restrained herself, and awaiting i
with impatience, gave vent to her fee! r
ings in a flood of tears. Darkness had
spread her sable mantle over tho land
scape hefore the conflict entirely ceas
ed. It was late at nfijht when Miss
Gray hath thiew herself upon her couch;
and tt was in vJui that she tried to j
slumber. The scenes which had prob- |
ably been enacted on the bloody plains j
of Richmond arose up so vividly to
fore her imagination as to preclude all |
hope of sleep on that eventful night. — J
Long before the suit had made its ap
pearance above the eastern foils. Miss
Gravham, accompanied by her mother
and a f itthful servant, was out upon
the highway leading toward Richmond
The journey was soon performed, but
on their arrived at Richmond, instead
of meeting, as they had dared to hope,
the men whom they regarded as the
brave defenders of their country, they
were greeted upon every side by the j
gr;.yclad warriors. Alter searching
in vain among the captives for her
brother. Miss Grayhatn applied for ar.d
obtained permission from the general
commanding lb visit the battle ground,
whither site immediately repaired, and
which she diligently searched for her
brother, but in vain. Hope now look
die place of suspense. It was possible
tie might ha«e been more fortunate than
many of his feiunv soldiers. With this
buoyant hope resting in her bosom our
lair heroine took her leave, but on
passing the scene of the conflict in
which her fricmi had been defeated, she
beheld a Confederate soldier, who ap
peared to be Ftiffiiring from a severe
wound, and approached him. Site
Minin discovered that he was an officer
of some positior, but being little ac
quainted with Confederate military
(1 ress, she could not distinguish h:s
ttiisgni iof rank. Prompted by a desire
tu alleviate the rtifferings of any who
might be so unfortunate as to require
assistance, site had him taken tip and
placed iti her carriage, and, with the
permission of the General comm Hilling,
conveyed him to her mother's residence
where she had him properly cared fir,
and administered to his wains with her
own fair hands. The reader will
doubtless recognize .Miss Grayham’a
charge, who was none oilier than
Lieutenant Jackson, of Murfreesboro,
Tennessee, whose poor widowed moth
er ami fatherless sister were wholly
ignorantof hit misfortune. Miss Gray
ham had the family physician called to
attend her charge, who declared that
amputat'on would be necessary before
the wound, with . which Lieutenant
Jackson was suffering, could be cured.
This was accordingly done, and, after
mativ week’s suffering and patient en
durance, the Lieutenant was restored
to health ; hut during his illness the
Confederate forces were driven from
the State, and he thus found himself in
an enemy’s country with hut compara
tively few friends to the cause w hich
he had so nobly espoused, lie had
formed an attachment for tfie fair being
who had been so kind to him. and to
whom he probably owed his life—a
friendship which was fast lipening into
a stronger passion. But could he hope
to win the love of one to whom he was
a public enemy? lie tried to banish
the image of his love from his heart,
but it seemed to cling the more closely
to it. In a short time he was called to
go forth for exchange, hut he could not
leave the presence of ttic ta;r being
whom lie now secretly worshiped,
without confessing his love. With
feelings better imagined than described,
he presented himself before the idol of
his passion and j>.Hired out the tale of
liis secret love with all the pathos of
an ardent devote. Instead of being
rejected, as was his natural supposition,
she bid him hope, on the condition that
he Would renounce the Confederate
cause, and resume his allegiance to the
Government of the United States.—-
Revolting as was the condition on
which he might gain the hand of his
idol in manage, our hero yielded, not,
however, without hesitating long be
tween love and dutv. He knew that
he was physically disabled front further
service as a soldier in the service of his
country, auJ it was to this considera
tion that he owed his decision. Ac
cordingly, upon his arrival at the
metropolis of the tstate, he obtained
permission, and - subscribed to the Pres
ident’s amnesty oath, after which he
returned to the home of his betrothed,
where we wi’l (cave them for the
preseat, happy tu their new born love
and proceed to chronicle other scenes
con meted woh our story,
l \ lew months subsequent to the
opening scenes of 'air sketch* the Fed*
erai army in me Southwest Was put in
nil.;iuii to dislodge that ot the Loafed'

ot Murfreesboro, Veuncsswi. General
Roseerans. the Federal commander,
placed hts well trained legions in bat
tle array and advanced. The extreme
van «va* composed of a regiment of
Kentucky troops, prominent among
whose officers was Captain Grayhi.ru..
The conflict was opened with great
spirit and determination, by the ad
vanced columns of Federal troopers*,
ami met with great obstinacy by tfsa
Confederates, under General Bragg.---
As. it is not our purpose to give in de
tail the scenes of that great conflict,
we refer our readers to history, upon
whose pagas is recorded the details ot
the great battle, known in history *«
tfie battle of Stopo-River, or
boro. Suffice it for our purpose to say
that after the conflict ceased and tho
wounded were gathered from the field
of carnage, it was discovered that
Captain Gray ham was numbered n
rnong them. In being consigned to tho
various hospitals tn .\lurlreosboro ami
Nashville, it became a matter of c flows* *
with the wounded which they should
select, nod as Captain Gravham desired
remaining as tiear the seat ot war as
wu3 consistent with prudence, he was
transferred to .Murfreesboro. Alter he
had been in the hospital for some days,
suffering for the most common necessa
ries of life. there appeared at the side
of hi3 sick couch, a young lady of
tender feelings who seemed dcsirnu«« t
rendering assistance to the su fibre ra
gathered there. Her heart was touched
.with pitv at tho sight of Captain Gray
ham. She visited the hospital almost
daily, and each time she carried some
little luxury, prepared by her ori
hands, and gave it to Capt. Grayhsm.
At length, after many weary weeks at
suffering, fie recovered sufficiently tu
’be able to walk a short distance tacit
dav. During one of Lis promenades
through the street! of Murfreesboro tut
accidentally conic upon the residence
of the lovely maiden to whoso tender
aid he probably owed his life, ile al
most involuntarily entered, and spent
some hours in conversation with the
family in whom he had become some
what interested. After partaking of
amne refreshments which had been
served bv tits servant, he took hi*
departure with a pressing invitation,
from tlte young maiden and her mother
to call again on the morrow, it is
| needless to say that Captain Gray hum
I accepted the invitation. lie became a
frequent visitor at the home ul this Jmr
damsel, and a warm friendship soon
sprang up between them which wav fast
ripening into a stronger sentiment.
Winter with its drcririess soon pass
ed away, ami spring returned, and with
it came a letter to Captain Giavhata
from his sister, requesting him to come
home, if possible, in early summer, as
she was lobe married, and wanted him
to be present on the occasion. Imagin'*
his surprise on reading the nanicoi the
nersott to whom his bister was to be
united. It was Lieutenant Jackson, of
the Confederate army. He hastened to
the side ofThe fair maiden whom ha
had learned to love, and who also bore
the name of Jackson, to ascertain if they
were any relation.
M illie Jackson, for such was liiu
name of the young lady in question,
was almost overcome with joy on hear
ing that her brother still lived, for sh«
hail tric'd in vain to gain sum ; clue as t»
Ins mysterious disappearance. In early
June Captain Grayhatn obtained leave
of absence, ar.d, accompanied by M;«*
Jacksuii, started for his home, at which
pbee they in duo time arrived. The
wedding was a brilliant afl ,ir. Every
thing that hears could wish or wealth
procure graced the grand festival.
After the invited guests had taken
their departure. Lieutenant Jackson

Captain Grayhatn and his fair fiancee,
paid a visit to the bailie field of Rich
mond, Ivy., and there together, beneath
tiie umbrageous foliage of a stalely
elm, they talked over the scenes of that
memorable battle. A few days after

the discharge of his duties as an officer
in the army of the Republic, and the
latter to her home ainoug the romantic

nearly throe-fourths of the nineteenth
century have passed away, still groan
