AX INTERESTING LETTER.
A Northern Officer's Tribute to Captain
Dunklin, mi Old Resident oi' Selnia.
By permission of Judge John Harlason
we publish the following from Capt. F. A.
Donaldson, of Philadelphia, which shows
the depth of feeling and nobility of nature
of more than one of those who were once
our enemies :
Philadelphia, May 10, 1SS3.
John Haralson, Esq., Selma, Alabama
Dear Sir: Your letter of the 2nd inst., in
response to one written to the Adjutant
General of Alabama, was duly received.
Its contents removes from my mind, and-from
that of others who are familiar with
the subject of which I wrote, the impression
that, beyond having met his death at
Gettysburg, the family of Capt. Dunklin
had "no further information. This impression
arose solelv because of the vast num
ber of dead by whom he was surrounded,
giving the idea of the utter extinction of
his company and those near to his person
at the time he was killed. I was firmly of
the belief that none escaped to tell just
when and where this gallant gentleman
met his fate, but, of course, I now know
that there were some who did survive, and
there were other dead there than those of
the 44th Alabama. The hope that at some
future day of being able to communicate
withhis family was the occasion of
observing closely his person and name,
but this "intention was frustrated by the
of the memoranda, only to be revived
again after a lapse of nearly nineteen
years, by the receipt of a letter written by
mvself iit that time containing the very
facts alluded to, a copy of which I here
with enclose. It, at hrst, was my intention
merely to mention certain facts in regard
to this officer, but I feel that my object
would be better served if I quoted", in full,
that portion of the letter relating to Capt.
Dunklin, as it will illustrate the true feeling
of the soldiers of both armies at that
time and, indeed, during the whole war, towards
one another, when the actual fighting
was over. I will add that the impression
the dead officer made upon myself
and others who were with me at the time,
lias never been effaced, and although
many terrible scenes and sights were encountered
during the remainder of that
great struggle, this one alone stands prominent
and will have place while memory
lasts. I trust I have not unnecessarilv
awaken emotion long since buried, but I
feel that I can fulfill an obligation to the
memory of a fellow-soldier who, although
an enemy in life, in his death were canceled
all feelings save those of respect and
sorrow in the hearts of his foes.
F. A. Donaldson.
Extract from a letter dated July 21st,
lSGo, relating to events at Gettysburg on
the 4th day of Julv, 1S63.
Just where we halted to allow the skirmishers
to advance, I noticed one spot in
particular, where apparently the enemy's
line had haulted momentarily in order to
gather itself together for the desperate
assaults of the hill-. The ground was
strewn with the bodies of men consisting,
I could readily percevie, of a whole company
that had been in the line of fire from
our regiment and had received its volleys,
together with that of a full charge of canister
from the battery on our right, killing
every single ono of them. I counted
thirty-seven bodies, all dressed alike in a
coarse, dark material, with black felt hatF,
seemingly new, and most likely taken
from a store in Gettysburg or some other
town. From among their dead comrades
these men were conspicuous for their
cleanly, well dressed and well shod appearance,
giving the impression that they
represented a " crack" company in their
regimental organization, wmen was
borne out by the appearance of the
officer who had commanded them, A
little in front of these bodies, with his
head resting on a stone, his body straightened
out and-his hands folded across his
breast lay, -as if asleep, one of
men I ev.er saw. . Some ope had
arranged his body with tl.e
of removing it after the battle, but
even this kind friend must surely have
been killed, judging from the number cf
dead that marked the passage of this
particular regiment. He appeared to I e
about thirty-five years of age, was dressed
in gray cloth jacket and pants, neither
showing much wear, and appeared to be
at least five feet ten inches in height,
weighing probably about ono hundred
and sixty pounds. His face had been
shaven upon the cheeks the day of his
death, leaving a splendid and luxuriantly
flowing chestnut beard upon the chin.
The ball that had slain him had pierced
his heart, passing through a letter in his
breast pocket, from which I learned his
name to beDuncan (Dunklin)Forty-fourth
Alabama Regiment. As usual with all
dead soldiers, his pockets were inside out,
thusshowing that the plunderer had been
about, though of course, from among his
own people, as our troops never occupied
trhe ground. Sitting down, I examined
his body closely, and judging from the
silken underwear, he had evidenly been
a man of means and position in his community,
in tact the letter addressed Jo
him was from some one in authority in
his town, as it related to plans evidently
suggested by the deceased for the capture
of deserters'who were occupying the brufch
around his place. I should mention that
the appatent good condition of this
body arose solely from the character
of his wound. The ball passing through
his chest and head had caused internal
hemorhage, his veins being thus freed
from blood, his body resisted longer the
action of the weather than others shot
elsewhere. One of the field officers, ob
serving that the men standing near had
scarcely a piece of leather to their feet,
said that -here would be no impropriety
in their taking this officer's boots and the
shoes of any of the men lying near. To
their credit, be it said, they all refused to
do so. It is my purpose, should an opportunity
offer, "at some future day, to acquaint
his family of the fact that his remains
were the special notice of the officers
of the regiment. I cannot tell you how
sad the fate of this soldier made me feel.
Indeed. I can picture myself the anxiety
of his family for intelligence from this terrible
and with no word received,
their confident belief in his capture,
for surely some of his company must have
escaped unhurt, and I can fancv the long
lapse of years, without one sign from their
dear one, and their hearts sicken at hope
deferred. Sleep well, brave hero, for there
is no one here to mourn for you now ; no
friendly voice to testify to the noble heart
that beat so proudly but a few hours ago,
but is now so awfully still ; no comrade to
speak of your great courage, no living
witness of your last agonizing cry, but
while you sleep the deep sleep for the all
time, when the winds sigh, and the gales
whistle, will the trees above you whisper
to one another a requiem forever and forever.
"Farewell, brother soldier, In peace may yon
And light He the turf o'er your veteran breast,
Until that revives, when the souls of the brave
nau sing oenouune cmei ensign, ia:r iUnrcys
Then lreed irom death's terrors and hostile
When you hear the last bu;ile you'll stand to
At parting I grasped his cold hand in
mine, and bid farewell to the noble form
that lay stretched in death before me, and
the last I saw of poor Dunklin was his
calm and peaceful countenance turned towards
heaven, and his splendid beard and
rn filed shirt front, which made him so conspicuous
an object among his dead comrades.
I trust his grave will be marked
as I left his name pinned to his coat, feo
that at some future time his family may
be possessed of what remains of his handsome
person, but I fenrthis cannot be, f.s
there are so many to bury that time will
be wanting even to scatter a little earth
over them all.
Captain Dunklin was killed at the spot
known as the ".Devil's Den," at the head
