A correspondent tells the following story of one of the farmers in the vicinity of Culpepper, whose possessions lay in a district where both armies foraged. The old chap, one day, while surveying ruefully the streaks in the soil where his fences once stood, remarked with mush feeling:

“I hain’t took no sides in this yer rebellion, but I’ll be dog-gorned if both sides hain’t took me.”

I'm a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday's words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. - Karan
