we were ordered to fall back. This
was the beginning of our retreat!

Hut, oh, my! how we covered the

melted like snow before the sum

down before they fell back. A few
came in prisoners. A double line
was then formed, and another charge
was made about half past two
o'clock, which proved even more
fatal than the first, or at least we
killed more. They then changed
their tactics and came upon our left

line. This caused it to give way.
and, in the confusion. General Mc
Rae ordered me to form a skirmish

cut off by the enemy. I then took
two of my men, marched through
the woods to the river, which was
rising. At this point there was a
bend, and the water being over the
banks formed an island at the pomt
where the turn was made. We
quickly crossed to the island where
the undergrowth was very thicc.
We then spread our blankets for the
night, although we had had nothing
to eat since the time the shooting

At the break of day we arose,
careful to keep concealed in the
most obscure part of that thicket,
not caring to be picked ofi by the
enemy, or taken prisoners. This was
one lonesome day. With nothing to
satisfy hunger and nowhere to go,
we crouched down like opossums in
preference to capture.
A3 soon us the shades of night be
gan to fall we crept cut from our
concealment, wdded the little run
which separated the mainland from
the island, and started up the river
to join our command

and were in hopes of getting to cur

We had succeeded in getting away
from the tramp of the Yankees, as
we thought, but about mid-day
we heard the quick repoi t
oi a gun in iront oi us near
i river. I saw the smoke, then I heard
the command, "Halt!" given. We
marched to the public road where
the cavalry was passing, and there
we heard that General Lee had been
i cut off from Danville by Shearidan's
cavalry, who had dispatched General
Mead to bring up h?3 infantry and
the war would soon be over.
The colonel of the passing cavalry
Jll.v ail v
was guarding a private house," add
ing that we were guerillas, and that
a d d guerilla had slipped up and
shot him in the leg. The colonel
said, "D m them, hang them to the
first limb." By that time I began
to grow weak, yes, and scared, too;
but speaking up I said, "Colonel, we
are not guerillas; here is my muster
roll, this will prove who we are.
Neither I nor my men shot that man,
and if you will look at his pants you
will find one leg off. If you will ex
amine his pistol you wiil find one
of its chambers empty. He shot
himself and I saw him cut the leg Oi
his pants off. Thi3 lie did to gain a
furlough, and it was not done by my
men. Their guns are now still load
ed, so is my pistol." The colonel
then turned upen him and said,
"Hanging is too good for you." The
soldiers were so excited they were
about to kill the fellow.
We were then sent to General
Mead's headquarters. A3 we ar
rived he had just gotten a di&patch
by a courier from General Grant,
ordering him to have the soldiers
throw away all surplus baggage,
such as blankets, overcoats and the
like, and these he would have them
paid for, and to join him as soon as
possible; that if he had infantry
there the war would soon be over.
It was then three, p. m., when
General Mead's army was started on
a forced march, which was kept up
all night. Wednesday morning the
army was almost wild with ex
citement. After a short stop for breakfast,
the line of march was resumed. The
soldiers threw down their blanket3
and overcoats, and the road for ten
miles was strewn with all sorts of
baggage, thrown away by orders of
Up to this time I had not had a
mouthful of anything to eat, and
only one night's sleep, and that was '
the night I spent on the river. The!
forced march wr. continued until 12
o'clock Thursday'night, when we ar
rived at Amelia Court-house. Up
to this time no rations since Satur-
I day before the fiht began had been
j furnished us. Ihe Yankees were
on short rations. ; They were ahead
of their commlsiary train, which
was expected to overtake the army
When we arrivid at the Yarkee
lines at Amelia Ourt-house Thurs
day night about 15 o'clock, I was so
near broken do-.va and so hungry I
could not sleep.
Friday mornirg we were promised
rations, but there was little to be
had, only a little beef that had been
killed on the nureh. It was too
poor for anything, and not a particle
of greasfe to Cook it with. The cook
ing we did over ai old fence rail fire,
with no salt, no biead, in fact, noth
ing but poor fresh beef, only partly
cooked by the rail fire.
Twelve o'clock Friday orders were
issued to give eath prisoners three
ears of corn and srt them back to
retsrsburg, witi instructions to
get rations a3 soon as we met the
commissary train, which we were
expecting to meet every minule.
Night came on and no train had been

until after midnirh!, and we had
nothirg to eat except the corn.

having rained. There were ubcut
350 prisoners returning from Amelia
Court-house to Fetersburg, and four
or five old horses, ro poor they could
hardly walk. Colonel Ed. Cantwell
claimed one, which he road until he
arrived at the city limits of Peters
burg; he then gave me his horse to
ride. The guard would not allow
me to ride in the mkfdle of the street
but forced me to ride on the side
waik, in line with the other prison
ers. I have never seen Such a hard
looking set of men as were the pris
oners who marched into Petersburg
i from Amelia Court-house where Gen
eral Lee surrendered. The guard
compelled us to keep our old broken
down horses in line For ho other tea
son than to humiliate us. We sup
posed they would drop them at Pe
tersburg, but not so. They were
carried to City Puint, where we;
found a large steamer ready to carry
us to Washington, D. C.
While in Petersburg no prisoner
was allowed to. leave the lines. A
friend of mine living there, asked if
I could be allowed to go with him
for only a few minutes. "No !" wa3
the reply. He then took my haver
sack and filled it with snaps, cheese
and crackers. Fron that time until
I reached the steamer at City Point
I ate every step of the way, fifteen
miles. 1 was almost starved and
very weak from not having had any
rest. I had marched three nights
without sleep, had but one square
meal in nine days; I had marched
about 80 milesi and with a most in
describable yearning in my stomach.
When I got aboard of that steamer
I felt just like "the day of jubilee
had surely come."
We arrived at Washington City
about one o'clock on the day of
President Lincoln assassination.
For some cause the trisoners were
held on Pennsylvania Avenue about
three hours. Wc hari just heard the
news of Lee's surrender, and there
was a report that Congress, then in
session, was discussing th advisabil
ity of parolling the prisioners, and
sending them home. That night we
all were quat tared in the old Capitol,
and were in high hopes, thinking of
getting our parole and papers home
by next morning; bat at roll-call we
were informed of the assassination
of the President. I replied, "I am
glad of it." The Sergeant said:
"you had better mind how you talk;
were it known you had made such a
remark you would be strung up to
the first lamp post." I did not be
lieve the report was true but thought
it merely a test to see how the pris
oners would act if such a catastrophe
had happened. Bat it was soon
found to be true. Thousands of
yards of crepe were strung on the
pillars of the capital. We were soon
informed that it took two regiments
of Infantry and one of Cavalry to
protect the prisoners from the in
furiated mob during the night, when
the facts of the assassination were
know throughout the city. The
prisoners were in great anxiety for
the next few days, not knowing
what the rsults might be to them
o Lie sent to Johnson s
Only one ration was giver,
the stait, with a promise
e would be furnished with
more in Baltimore, but when we
got there, they found the excite
ment so great that the prisoners
were marched through the city un
der a double guard in the middle of
the street, and as fast as possible, to
take train for Harrisburg, Pa. We
were again told that we would be
provided with rations at this point;
but the excitement ran high there,
so nothing was furnished us. The
public openly declared that hanging
was too good for the Rebel "S BV
This feeling was manifested at each
and eveiy station from Washington
j City to Johnson's Island, except Bal
timore where w found much sym
pathy shown. Rations were once
more promised us at Pittsburg, Pa.,
but when we arrived there only the
guards were provided for, the pris
oners got nothing. At Mansfield
Ohio, I found some boys telling
maple sugar and as prisoners were
not allowed on the platform of the
cars nor allowed to raise a window, I
requested one of the guards to buy
me some of the sugar; but told 3i!m
I had only Confederate money to pay
for it with. "How much do you
wish?" he asked. I told him five
dollars worth, which took all the boy
had. I vas rather slow in giving
him the pay, as I wished to hand him
the money just as the train was
starting off, for I knew the boy
would make a how! when he saw the
kind of money he was to get for his
pay. He did yell for a fact. He
called for me to give him back his
sugar, and sad he did not want that
"Old Blue Money," but this was all
I had, and all he got.
The sugar was fine, and it came in
good time to be appreciated. We
had been on the road from Washing
ton three days, and hot h ration had
been issued by the Government.
The distance to Johnson's Island was
about 1,000 miles. The number t-f
prisioners was bont 1.700. We
were in prison from Aprii until JiliiC
18G5. Johnson's Island is situated
in Lake Erie. It was at this point
that the officers we're in prison. The
stockade enclosing the prisoners had
a wall around it twelve feet high.
There were four block houses, one
in each corner with a small cannon
on each, side to guard against revolt.
In this enclosure there were 13 build
ings to accommodate about 2,500 of
ficers. About 192 men to each build
ing. The buildings were pretty well
packed. The allowance of rations
was about one fourth of that of the
regulation allowance per day, except
vinegar, which wa3 given us in fuli
quanti y to sharpen our appetites.
Wharf rats infested this prison in
such large numbers, that the prison
ers would catch them and use them
for food. After soaking them in
salt a few hours, they were fine and
palatable. Barbecued rats become
very popular, and were often given
as a delicacy for the sick. One rat
being an allowance, when more than
one was called for, the sick was de
clared convalescent, and was put on
a diet of bread coosh for a few days.
This dish was known only to the pris
oners of Johnson's Island, and differ
ed from Washington pie in. one re
spect only Washington pic was bak
ed while coosh was not.
The most improved way of cooking
a rat, was to fasten bin tail to a small
wire suspended over the fire, giving
him a whirl, then applying the bast
ing, which was a mixture of salt,
pepper, vinegar, and melted tallow.
This we would mop over the rat to
prevent its burning while cooking.
Rat pie was at first a very popular
dish with the men, until some of
them ate to much and were made
sick. This almost broke up the eat
ing of rat pie. Some who had been
too ravenous were never able to en
joy the rat after this. At one time
we were eating so many that we were
frightened, lest the race would be
come exterminated, and so we had
to abolish the diet and stop the sale
of rats. At this time I invented a
trap and thought I would soon be
able to corner the market on rats;
but my invention proved a failure
and I never succeeded in catching a
single one. They would go in the
trap all right and eat the bait, but
would never touch the trigger. Af
ter eatinjr all the bait they would
come out licking their mouths.
There were all kinds of trading
going on among the prisoners. Those
who made rings had me to let them
have the handle of my pocket-knife,
which was of the most beautiful
pearl; this they replaced with beef
bone. I was paid for the pearl with
rings cut out of guttapercha, set
with pearl, also chains cut from the
on account of the tragedy,
finally decided tht the
same material finished off with pearl
st'tting. They were
one couid Luy ftve time as manvrats
with a perarl f et chain as they could
witii a nice chain. The Daughters of
the Confederacy of Wilmington have
the knife of which I speik, in the
museum at this present time.
During our entire imprisonment,
rations were always scarce ar.d or
ders ex!c?dingly strict. At night
taps, the putting out of lights, had
to be observed to the minute, or the
guard would shoot through the block
where the light was seen. This was
done repeatedly, and prisoners were
often wounded by the guards for not
observing this regulation promptly
Rumors were constantly going the
rounds while we were in prison.
Once a report was circulated that
the government did not intend to
furnish transportation for the pris
oicrs to go home on; this caused
much uneasiness. 1 wrote to my
brother Alexander for money to pay
my way home, and he sent me $100
which, reached the Island the day be
fore our discharge was granted. I
had received $20.00 some time previ
ous to thh from a lady in Peters
burg; but as prisoner. were not al
lowed any money, this wa taken
from me and was given to an ot!i er
of the Government, who would cred
it the amount to each party re-j
ceiving money and he Could give
them an order on this officer for such
as he wished to buy, which would be
charged up to him. AH cur mail
was examined before given to u?
and should there hnppen to be
any money in the letter, it was plac
ed to our credit, and we could u.o it
by drawing only a limited amount
each day. One letter I received, the
Inspector reported on the back, "you
will find $20.00 and a kk?," but I on
ly found the $20.00, no ki?s. I ac
cepted the money but was sorry I
failed to get the kiss.
