The following occurred at Battle Creek, on the Chattanooga Railroad, in March, 1864: A pair of lovers bethought themselves of getting married, and having procured a license, they set out on horseback. They soon came up to a parson “setting” on a fence,–it seems he did something occasionally at farming,–and requested him to “solemnize the sacred rites of matrimony at once.” The parson finally assented, and he “setting” on the fence, and they on their horses, the “sacred rite” was “solemnized,” after which they went on their way rejoicing.

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
