12 o'clock that night, bringing out the

was while we were marching out of

time we came to a crowd of yankees
there was a fight. The largest battle
was that of Farmsville. From there

He also relates how a song got started.
It was customary for the men who
were too old for war to come to the
camps with rations to peddle. and one
nizht an old fellow's mule got loose
and the mischievous boys commenced
shouting all over the camps, "Here's
your mule, here's your mule," until
the old fellow was so confused he
didn't know where his mule was. One
-mart fellow wrote the song like this:
"In August or September last
Of that most bloody year just past,
On Shenandoah's banks I stood
And mused in melancholy mood
When suddenly I heard a fool
Yelling loudly, 'Here's your mule.'
Here's your mule, 0 here's your mule;
Yelling loudly, Here's your mule.
Disgusted now I turned my back
And to the camps I took my track;
I got to camp 'twas dress parade,
The line was formed, the orders read:
The commander in chief his bow had
Parade dismissed the adjutant said.
The men broke loose like boys in
Bellowing loudly, Here's your mule.
Sickened now, I a furlough got.
And to my home I took a trot;
And every where, in stage orcar,
Here's your mule, would greet my ear.
Here's your mule, Here's your Mule,
Here's your mule; 0 here's your mule.'
