When the Thirteenth was brigaded
with us, everybody spoke In praise of
its vank and file. No better material
could bare been found In America

colonel to be an egotist and a drunk

him credit for anything outside.
One day the regiment came out to
relieve the Fourth on outpost duly.
At midafternoon a hundred Confeder

who tried to make a bolt for it. And
the captains got their reaper!lve com

looked savage and swelled out their
chests and shouted: ~~~

are such Inscriptions as, "I do my work
