He writes - We saw men fall in every direction. There are some got fingers shot off.
I never got touch at all, but it got shot all round us. The bombs shells cut the tips of the trees off.The next day the Rebels turned black as a nigger. We saw some without any head. Some shot through the guts. The battle was in the cornfield.
There was a Rebel to every corn hill. The field was covered with Rebel and where we was in the woods covered with rebels and our men too, and ground black with them. It was hard to see them lay there bleeding to death. I can on this mountain and shit clean to Harpers Ferry which is a distance of 2 miles. I can do it every time.
