On the Campaign

It is very horrifying to hear the cries of the wounded who are all around us. The Yankee line of battle is plainly visible and the rumbling of their artillery can plainly be heard as they move from one point to another ... The odds are against us and every prospect goes to prove that we will have another Bloody battle today.
