An officer of the Second Connecticut regiment, in a letter to his family, says: “The coolest thing I ever heard of happened at the battle of Fair Oaks. Right in the hottest of the battle, two of the Second’s boys got at loggerheads with each other, threw down their muskets, and fell to at fisticuffs–had it out, picked up their arms, and pitched into the rebels again. I have heard of a wheel within a wheel; but a battle within a battle is certainly something new.”

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
