Atlanta, Chickamauga, Franklin and Nashville. I never gave up my rifle when Joseph
E. Johnston surrendered. If I could only have the pleasure of being with the many readers of this book I could tell of many of the hardships and sufferings the Confederate soldier underwent. I have
marched for two or three nights without sleep, and when I did have the opportunity,
had to lay on the frozen ground with my gun in readiness, watching for the enemy.
Also suffered greatly from hunger.
