A fine-looking negro went into the Union lines on the Potomac, and reported himself for work.

“Where are you from?” asked the officer on duty.

“Culpepper Court House, sar.”

“What’s the news down there?”

“Nothing, massa, ‘cept dar’s a man down dar lost a mighty good and valuable nigger dis morning, and I reckon he dun lose more afore night.”

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
