a caillp named after Albert Sydney
johnston, the dashing leader who fell
at Shiloh, and tle tents were crowded
to the limit on the first day.
The great mess shed, sealing 12,000,
was opened at 10 o'clock. An army
of cooks and waiters worked like
beavers, while the veterans, with a
hunger born of a night In the opeil,
did their best in an able manner to
keep the cooks busy. Tea, coffee
and milk by the barrels; beans, meat,
hard tack and accessories by the wa-on
load disappeared in iarvellous fashion.
" The boys is eatini' as if tly'd lvee
separated from the wagon train for
about three days," is tile way one
