Robert Underwood Johnson, Clarence Clough Buell, Battles and Leaders of the Civil War: The Opening Battles. Volume 1., With Slemmer in Pensacola Harbor. (search)
t the baker, and don't know how many he bakes for. Next to the commodore, the most thoroughly excited and demoralized man I saw was our old Spanish friend, Francisco Gomez, who was well known in all that region, and had long lived in a little cottage just in front of the barracks. He was the friend of all army officers, but his hero was General Jackson, and his great delight was to spin yarns to us about Jackson's capture of Pensacola from the British. Gomez was a true original Jackson man, having as a youth seen him at Pensacola. The morning we left, I met him walking to and fro in front of his cottage, and said: Good-bye, Mr. Gomez; you must take caMr. Gomez; you must take care of things here now! He replied, with upturned eyes, My God! My God! it is awful; nothing can be saved; we shall all be killed — everything destroyed. I am afraid to say anything. How I wish General Jackson was here. And the old man straightened himself up as if the mere mention of the name gave him strength and courage.
