Jtet bne upon the American defenses I
belonged to the atmX and ae we advanced I
we watched through f MT glMee the po
tition of the enemy with what intensity an
officer only feel when marching into the
jaws of death It was a strange sight that
breastwork with a crowd of beings behind
1their heads only visible above the line of
defense We could see their long rifles
lying on the works and the batteries in our
front with their great mouths gaping too
Yardus
We could also He the poettion of Cener
al Jacjcsoa with his staff around him But
attracted our attention meet was the
figure of a Wad ma > Banding on the breast
works dreiwed it nfeywooUey with
buckskin lenings ar da broad Ir mme d
felt hat that fell around the face atuxt
concealing the feature He was standing
ID ole of those picturesque graceful t
tudc peculiar to thoM natural meta dwell

hand g1UpinJ the rUMF iflc muzzle
the butt ofwnieh rested near the too pf hiss
right foot With the left hand he raised
the rim of the hat from ieyes and seem
ed gazing intently on our advancing col
umn The cannon of the enemy had op
ened on us and tore through our works
Ddwith dreadful slaughter but we continued
to advance unwavering and coolas if
nothing threatened our progress
adThe roar of cannon had no effect upon
the figure before us he seemed fixed ands
itsmotionlesss a statue At last he moved
Iethrew back his hut rim over the crown
with hia left hand raised the rifle to the
shoulder and took aim at our group
Out eyes were riveted upon him at
whum had he leveled his piece But the
distance wan so great that we looked at
each other and smiled We saw the flash
and very richtly conjectured that his aim
waa in the direction of our party My right
hand companion as noble a fellow as ever
lfdIlt the head ofa regiment fell from

out moving his gun from his shoulder
Then he reloadedand assumed his former

It
Once more the hat rim wathrown back
bftCk1and
we did not smile but cast glances at
eachother to see whichof UK must die
the rifle flashed another
When again one
ofour party dropped to the earth There I
something most awful in this marching
to certain death The cannon and thous
ands of musket balls playing upon our
ranks we cared not for for there was a
chance of escaping them Most of us had
walked so coolly upon batteries more de
structive without quailing but to know
every time that rifle was leveled to
ward us and its bullet sprang from the
barrel one of us must surely fall to sec it
motionless as if poised on a rock and
know when the hammer came down that
messenger of death drove unerringly to
goal to know this and still march on
awful I could see nothing but the
figure standing on the breastworks he
seemed to grow phantom like higher and
higher assuming through the amoke the
supernatural appearance of some great
spirit of death
Again did he reload and discharge and
reload and discharge his rifle with the
same unfailing aim and the same unfailing
result and it was with indescribable pleas j
that I beheld as we neared the Amen
Ivan lines the sulphurous cloud gathering
around us and shutting that spectacular
hunter from out gaze
We lost the battle and to my mind the
Kentucky rifleman cthtributed more to our
defeat than anything else for while he re
mained in our sight our attention was
drawn from our duties and when at last
became enshrouded in the smoke the
work was complete we were in utter con
fusion and unable in the extremity to re
store order sufficient to make any success
attack The battle was lost
Ephriam M Drank came to Muh
lenberg about 1838 He was a law
yer by profession but devoted most
his time to surveying He lived
Greenville on Main street a half
mile north of the Court House Al
tho his later years were spent in
farming he nevertheless continqed
take a great interests n the pro
gress of the town
Capt Brank was a man of stately
proportions and wonderful physical
constitution He was a crack shot
and an enthusiastic hunter a well
read man resolute and systematic
He was kind to all and loved by
everybody
