"...Never before did I gaze so earnestly mentally into that dark unknown world & seek to the position I must occupy there. At this moment I trust I made a sincere, honest surrender of myself to God, the maker of my & the preserver of my life. ...I asked for life if that might be a useful one. Let me remember this in future years."
Augustus H. Mecklin, Pvt.
Co. I, 15th Miss. Inf. Regiment

"The night came on, and the Confederates lay down in line of battle to rest and slumber realizing the danger of the coming morn and the certainty that for many the next sunrise would be their last on earth."
