Excerpt from In Defense of the Flag; A True War Story: A Pen Picture of Scenes and Incidents During the Great Rebellion; Thrilling Experiences During Escape From Southern Prisons, Etc I had gone over the ground in the direction of Bull Run. And very close to the run, studded with trees, sat the skeleton of one of our Indiana men against a large elm tree. Just as he had died one year before. I called the attention of the officers to this Spectacle. The skeleton was in a sitting posture, the ?esh having entirely disappeared, and on the ground lay his blue clothes. On the arms of the clothes were the emblems showing the sergeant’s stripes and the number of his company and regiment. One of the officers just touched his sabre under the chin of this skeleton and it fell all to pieces. I thought this a wonderful sight.
