The book to which these lines form an introduction is a peculiar one in many respects.

It is a story, but it is a true story, and written years ago with little idea that it would ever come into this form.

When captured the first time we were not treated as badly as the second time, and no detailed account was kept of each day's doings.

On February 26, 1863, my regiment, the 13th Pa. Cavalry was ordered out on a scouting expedition up the Shenandoah Valley and to rout out what was thought to be a band of Rebel raiders.

We captured eight or ten of them and drove the remainder into the camp of the n-th Va, Rebel regiment at Woodsdock, some twenty miles from Winchester. On our return, at Fisher's Hill, we were met by a large force of the enemy, who were lined up on both flanks, and who opened fire on us.

We had a hand to hand fight for over half an hour, but their force and position were too much for us and we were forced to retreat.

Когда были пойманы в первый раз, с нами обращались не так плохо, как во второй раз, и подробной отчет не велся о каждодневных делах.

26 февраля 1863 года моему полку, 13-й Кавалерийской дивизии, было приказано отправиться в разведывательную экспедицию в Долину Шенандоа и разгромить то, что, как считалось, было бандой рейдеров.

Мы захватили восемь или десять из них и загнали остальных в лагерь n-го полка Повстанцев в Вудсдоке, примерно в двадцати милях от Винчестера. На обратном пути у Фишер-Хилла нас встретили большие силы противника, которые выстроились на обоих флангах и которые открыли огонь по нам.

Я имел мою лошадь подстрелиной подо мной возле Стросбурга, и вместе с пятьдесяти другими я был взят в плен и конвоирован в Ричмонд и помещен в Либбинскую тюрму.
