Excerpt from Second: Or a Side Show of the Big Show, by Sai; Edition Co, Aytch, Maury Grays, First Tennessee RegimentIn Go. Aytch we see the old webfoot, dressed in a dirty, greasy, gray suit - or rather non-suit - a cotton blanket thrown across his shoulder, and fastened under his cartridge box belt; a greasy, dirty haversack hanging down - very thin and flabby; with shoes of untanned leather. There he goes, foot sore, tired, and hungry, but chipper and sassy, and rbby; with shoes of untanned leather. There he goes, foot sore, tired, and hungry, but chipper and sassy, and ready for the battle.In Go. Aytch we see this same webfoot in camp, cook ing his rations - corn meal bread, corn meal coffee, corn meal soup, blue beef, with not an eye of grease on it. He lies down on the cold ground, in an old thin blanket, and shivers through the night.In Go. Aytch we hear this webfoot talking to his com 'rades, cheering their drooping spirits, discussing the situation, defending the general, hoping for final victory, and a glorious return home to father, mother, and sweetheart.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
