The Terrible Sdferings and Heroic En
durance of the Confederate Army in
Virginia in the Winter of 1864-5.
BY A sPROTr GUAP.
Just after the artillery attacks alluded to
in our last, we again made a strangc and
disagreeable, as well as a useless move. The
23rd was ordered to move to the ice house. a
house about a half mile in the rear of the
works, as we thought for a little rest, having
been so long in the intrenchments and hav
ing performed so much hard duty. About
11 o'clock the 23rd was relieved from the
trenches by some North Carolina troops. We
marched to this "ice house" and remained
there till about dark, when we were ordered
to move back towards the trenches. After
moving a short distance we found the 23rd
had to commence a new line of intrench
ments about a hundred yards in rear of the
part of the works we had just left that day.
A HARD AND DANGEnOUCS NIGHT'S wor.
On reasehing the place the officers who were
to superintend the work had to crawl about
on thaic hands and knees, and feel about in
the dark to find the stakes to direct the
ereetion of the works. After everything or
plan was understood the 23rd commenced
work in the pitch dark, for the night was
'very dark, save the faint glimmering of the
stars. We were now completely exposed to
the fire of the enemy, for on this part of the
lines and at these times the fire never ceas
ed altogether, day or night. The Federal
bullets were flying past and around u., the
-whole time. We had to dig and throw the
dirt from us, raising the works to the rear
of us, being altogether between the Yankee
bullets and the earth we were throwing up.
'We worked all night, quitting just as day
.began to break. This night I will never
forget. It was the night of Sept. 28th, 1864.
For that night's work we had swveral men
wounded. Co. I had two or three wounded,
one mortally, who died a short time after
wards. After daylight the 23rd was order
ed back to occupy the part of the line it
had left the day before, relieving the Nort a
Carolina troops. What made it seem strange
and unjust was that no other troops were
-ever called upon to work on this line, nor
was any more work ever done on them. The
gallant old 23rd could ever be depended on
to-do its duty, however, it made no differ
ence to what thecall of duty led.
. The 23rd held this part of the line till
sometime in November, then moved abont
a mile and a half higher upon the line to
the right. Food now began to get very
scarce indeed. About this time, November
1st, the sharp shooting in th. day in a m.as
ure began to slacken on both sides, and the
:troops could begin to move about without
much danger. Sharp shooting was finally
disecntinued in the day time, and the trops
on both sides were no doubt glad. The bat
teries of both sides kept up a pretty regular
rfue all the time in the day, and occasionally
at some time in the day the fire from the
batteries along the whole line would be very
rapid and would continue so for a good
while, then it would slacken to that of
a-fire at intervals of some minutes.
: The 23rd again moved a little further to
the right to a point of the lines near a large
residence known as the Wilcox house. At
this point the 23rd remained till after the
m idtile of the next March.
- CoLD ND EXPoSUIIE.
The weather was now setting in cold, and
.ine,n, lies. We had but little or no shel
-tr andMi we had had the best and most
.omfortable shelter under the sun we had
not the tim'e nor the opportunity to stay
under it. Men being scarce and duty being
cntant gave us but a poor chance to avail
orselves of any shelter, save the broad
ennopy of heaven. The Federal main line
2~was about a mile or so from the Confederate
main line at this point. The Confederate
.icket line was about three-quarters of a
mile from their main line. The Federal
~pieketline was some little distanee in ad
'aneof their main line. This brought the
Confei'rate and Federal pickets within 300
siyrds of each other.
mAnD DUTY. -
Duty now became very hard. We had on
-y men enough for a relief. It was picket
duty,or better to say, watch duty, for it was
to~ watch all the time. It was to remain on
the picket line all night, being relieved er
ery morning, making twenty-four hours on
-the picket hine. In the day we could get a
bittl sleep, but at night the order would be
for noone to sleep. About a hundred yards
n advance of the picket line we had vidette
posts, where two men from a company
would be detailed to remain four hours at a
time, then be relieved by two others, and so
n all through the night. Each company
on'picket would have to keep up a post of
this kind in its front. The videttes gener
ally sat down close together, which we were
allowed to do if we wanted to daring these
four hours. We would often sit down as
close to each other as possible in order to
'aid ua in'enduring the intense cold. Some
times while sitting close, together it would
esnowing, and by the time the four hours
would-expire the snow would drift against
Sus, and many times would be half as high
as our heads. After the twenty-fours picket
dinty we would be relieved and marched
back to the main lines, and then some nmghts
peroixt six hours guard duty at the in
renchments. The next moraing back to
the picket line, and on duty for twenty-four
vEEGING oN STABvATIoN.
In this manner and in this way duty was
performed without intermission for five
months. Rain, snow, sleet, or cold, it was
all the same. The duty had to be done.
But the most torturing part of the whole
matter was we were simply on the ragged
edge of starvation, reduced to the utmost
-want, and had been for five months. Our
raiosuall this time was a pint of corn meal
.a day, and it not bolted. As to meat we
received very little, some days we would
get a third of a pound, and as a general
thing it would be three days at a time we
would get no meat of any kind. Some days
a little salt and many days none. Most
persons consider bread without salt in it
poor eating; we considered it so too. This
'~was not the fare of the 23rd alone, but the
fare of Lee's whole army around Petersburg
and Richmond during the whole of the
winter of 1864-5. Sherman's terribieinarc-h
-~of plunder and fire through Georgia and
South Carolina, and Sheridan's destruction
of the Virginia canal, had cut off tne
sources of Gen. Lee's supplies, and this
more than anything else caused the Confed
rates to suffer so for food, and so the year
A LIITLE REsT, sUCH AS ITs w.s.
The year 1865 found the 23rd still in the
ines or rather intrenchments, suffering for
- pfod and performing its duty as usual near
-the Wilcox House. Eiott's Brigade had
now changed to Wallace's, Col. Wallace of
the 18th 5. C. Volunteers having (on ac
count of Gen. Elliott having to retire f'romi
service on account of a wound he had re
eeived at the 'uattle in front of Petersburg
*July 30th) been promoted to the rank of
Brigadier General, and from this time to thbe
-:end of the strife the brigade wvas knoivn as
Wallace's Brigade. We remained in the in
trenchments till about March 20th At that
time Gen. Johnston's divisi,>n was relieved
frm the intrenchimeots to get a little rest,
for it was now seen the struggle was soon to
In leaving the intrenchments we marched
about nine or ten miles from Petersburg to
a mp some troops had stayed at sometime
in the past. At this place we found somec
rude cabins made of' pine pole1s with dirt
chimneys to them. These cabins afforded
us a good deal of protection, especially from
the rains. Had we had any blankets wor th
calling blankets we would have done very
well, though we had to sleep on the ground,
-for dirt floors were all the kind the cabins
fored. With all this unpleasantness we
found them better than the nuddy trenehes
at Petersburg. Our rations though did not

tv. It was t':0 sarme old starvation business
here as it was in the trenches.
sH IIAN s VANDisb..1.
About this time Gen. William Teeun.;ehi
Sherman was far on the way of Shermuan's
memorable iarch to the sea, memorable for
punder, arson, and imrrder. This valiant
(God save the mark) American general with
all the instincts of a brutal savage had now
been for somuetime gratifXing his cowardly
and savage feic- in destroying all hi.
cowardly and vandal horde could not appro
priate to their own use. I have recently
read that Sherman's father had found some'
thing great in the n:ture and eblraetCr of
the savage Tecumseh, whose name is promui
nent in American history for deeds of bar
barity and cruelty, and naned his son for
him, and it appea-s in his bing named af
ter this hated savage it transmitted to Slier
man in a good measure a great deal of the
instincts and characteristics of that brutal
and bloodthirsty savage, for on his march
through Georgia and South Carolina he
showed all these in many ways. Ie told
the defenseless people through these States,
so it has been asserted on good athority,
that he would not only desnoy their prop
erty then, but if the war eontinued a year
longer he would return anl take their lives.
Would the savage Tecumseh have said
STAnVED AND OUTNU\MEEED, NOT DEFEATED.
The Confederates around Richmond and
Petersburg were aware of all this great Yan
kee general's brutal and inhuman warfare.
and this, coupled with the hardships they
had to suffer, made the matter indeed hard
to bear. Yes, and to be conscions of the
fact that they had not the power to avenge
these wrongs. Lee's army of not over forty
thousand starved and ragged soldiers was
confronted by a Yankee host ontnumbering
them five or six to one. for it was e!ahiied
by sonic of the Federals that Grant had an
army of two hundred and twenty-se-ven
thousand troops around Petersburg and
Richmond, and this number had been well
fed and well clothed all that hard and col"
winter that the Confederates had snifere I
so much through. It will always be reneut
bered that when Gen. Grant in his expewri
ence in several hard battles a while after the
opening of the campaign of 1864 saw that
he could not carry Lee's position by assault
he fell to intrenching his vast hosts, and
notified his authorities at Washington that
he proposed to tight it ont on that line if it
took all the sunimer. If when writing this
part of his plan to his government he h:tl
used the word starve instead of AigIt h
would certainly have been entitled to be
called a great general. Had the Confeder
ates had the men and the chance generally
they had two years before, Grant and his
troops never would have been allowed to
stay in these trenches all summer, for the
Confederates would have put the last Yank
out of the last ditch, and that in short or
der. As it was they were not strong enough
to carry on offensive operations, bt ha.] to
act on the defensive. Under all these try
ing disodvantages the Confederates still
ihoped for the final success of their aruis,
and the cause they so gallantly had upheld
for now nearly four years.
(rAND nEvIEw oF JOUNsON's DIvIsIoN.
The few days the 23rd had been out of
the trenches so passed, and the 24th of
March had now been ushered in. On that
day was ordered a review of Gen. Bushrod
.Johnson's division. Johson's division was
composed of the brigades of Gracie, Wise,
and Wallace, Alabama, Virginia, and Sonth
Carolina troops. At the appointed hour the
23rd was in line, and was soon on the field
of review with the other troops of the di
vision. The day was clondy, and the wind
cold and cutting. The review lasted at least
four honis, and after all the manonvres
pertaining to a business of this kind were
over the troops marched to their respective
encampments tqnite late in the evening.
We went on the review hungry, and after
this manoLuvering for four hoars we left for
oIr camp still Lungrier. We- had had noth
ing to eat since the evening b~efore, and
very little then. About sunset we managed
to receive our scant rations. consisting of a
pint of yellow corn meal and notbhng else,
not even a little salt to put in the pint of
mecal. By the time we had got this ration
and before we had timue to cook it we were

Four or five of us were waiting on
a hotel veranda in a Georgia town for
the 'bus to drive up ,and take us to

He tied the dog to a chair and ran
over to a hardwvare store and bought
a collar. Then he went to a dry
goods store and got half a yard of
blue ribbon, and in ten minutes the
dog was blanketed up and bowed up
until he did look f'ancy. I-e was taken
to the depot in a 'bus, and we had

A J.wer-Houi:-:n Pi:.--.A famous pie
mdle after the fashion of the one so
celebrated in the memory of boys and
girls is called the "Jack-Horner Pie,"
and offered to the happy guests of a
children's birthday celebration. Count
the number of lit tle ones invited, and
select a tov for each. These favors of
course must be sm'all, and it is best to
have all cost about the samne. Wrap
each :article earefully in wliite tissue
paper, and tie it with a cord. Then
attach to the enii of each cord a very
narrow ribbon about teu inches long,
a whilte one for the boys, a pink or
blue for the girls.
Have ready a large cake pan, and
in it place the gifts. Over the top
stretch several thicknesses of tissue
paper, and tie it down over the edge
of the pan. With a steel crochet-hook
draw up the narrow ribbons through
the tissue-paper cover, and let then
lie loose and ready for action. Cover
the outside of the pan with thick
white paper at the bottom, and around
the sides tissue-paper that has been
crinkled by folding and crushing be
tween the fingers. Make a deep
fringe of the same and paste it
around the top edge of the pan.
When this has been carefully done,
the effect will be that of a large white
iced cake, with the unusual addition
al adornment of the dainty ribbon
edges on the top.
When the time for dessert arrives,
bring in the delicate pie and place it
in the center of the table in the most
conspicuous position. Let the children
look and wonder, for there is quite as
much pleasure in anticipation and
guessiig as in the realization of such
Now let the boys and girls draw
together around the table and each
take the end of a ribbon. Let somi
one repeat or sing the time-honored
"Little Jtek Horner

He put in his thunb
And pulled ont a plum,
And said, 'What a great boy aw I!"
When the singer comes to the word
"lun" it is the signal for each child
to pull-and all must do it with a wil.
No one could imagine until seeing for
herseif, what a vast amount of fu!;
and excitement the little ones cau
manage to evolve from the simple act
of jerking an end of ribbon and the'
delight and surprise at tLe mysterious
packages that come bursting through
the tissue-paper. The same pLan
might be utilized for the amusement
of older people, taking care to buy
articles suited to their taste or faney.

Big 3ioucy in ludsmiiii Tohbdeco.
A short time ago the Herald re
viewed the subject of tobacco raising
and predicted that it was (destined to
become one of the leading money
crops in the Piedmont section. The
Atlainta Constitution, in writing on
the same line says:
The Constitution has received a
number of letters in response to an
editorial on the culture of tobacco in
this State, which appeared in these
columns recently- These letters show
that interest in the subject is wide
spread; that the tobacco industry has
taken firm hold in Georgia, and that
tobacco growers in other States are
greatly interested in the work which
is being done here.
Mr. H. E. Harmon, editor of the
Southern Tobacco .Jou rnal, Winston,
N. C., has had exceptional opportuni
ties for studying the advantages of
the tobacco crop over cotton, or any
other crops that thrives in the South,
and he writes to say that he is fully
convinced ~tobacco will grow just as
well all over the upper part of South
Carolina and Georgia as anywhere in
North Carolina or Tirginia. He says
that he is certain that the culture of
the weed in this State will prov'e a
blessing to the farmers, and for their
encouragement he gives the followving
results of experiments madle in eight
counties in South Carolina where to
bacco is being grown successfully.

the entire crop will sell for $t,000 or

It will be seen from the above that
tobacco growing in South Carolina is
no longer an expeliment, but a cer
tainty, and it is conifidenitly predicted
that in a few years the tobacco indus
try will spread over that entire see
tion, and becone the uost' rti i nnr

The growers of Nortih Carolina are
anxious to hear fro'n Georgia, and
will (do what they can to :sist the
farmers in this important work. To
bacco growing is little more thani an
experiment here ts yet, but if the in
terest in it does not wanc we are
convinced that it will yet enrich the
farmers and the State.- ranhurg
