A detachment of the Thirteenth Connecticut was detailed to do the shooting. At early morning the prisoners, with a strong military escort from our regiment, proceeded a couple of miles towards the lake, with a vast concourse of spectators thronging around. Passing out of Canal Street, they halted in an open field on the left. The troops were drawn up on three sides of a square. The...

They closed their doors and window-shutters, or scowled with eyes askance from verandas and balconies. The negroes from far and near swarmed to us. " Every soldier had a negro, and every negro a mule. Many of the blacks also brought with them horses, wagons, house-furniture, provisions, bundles of clothing, bedding, with their wives and infants, till...
Seite 77 - Halt!" said the sentry; and the Superintendent gave up the pursuit in despair.' '• The instructions which Bromley gave to Corporal Strange, a member of his staff, as he termed him, were quite significant. ' Strange, we're going on an expedition. I want my staff to be on the lookout for turkeys, geese, pigs, and sheep. Don't be the aggressor in any contest.
