Riassunto: The complete, first person account of Corporal Erastus Winters, Company "K", 50, O.V.I., 1861-1865. Unedited and in his own words. Perryville: "...minnie balls would strike the ground with a dull thud near us, or go singing over our heads like bees on the wing. We were ordered to unsling knapsacks, and place them in a pile, and get ready for business." Franklin: "One wounded Rebel fell on my feet and another on my left shoulder, their life's blood soaking and staining my clothing to the skin." Captured: "I shall never forget the humming, dismal sound of those messengers of death, as they passed over me and went whizzing over that field of blood, as I lay there a prisoner that night between the two lines of battle." Prison: "A something within me seemed to say: 'Do not give up; do not despair; bear your burdens bravely; keep in good heart and spirits; you shall yet be welcomed back into the family circle.' Many of the poor boys did not have this hope within them and gave way to grief and homesickness, and the trials and hardships that came to them soon took them over the Dark River of Death." Sultana: "No artist, I care not how clever he may be with his brush, can paint a picture as full of horrors as the picture that was painted on my memory, that April morning, 1865."
