on, and I was in charge of one of their pieces.
We drove the enemy pell-mell over rolling wheat fields, through a grove, across a creek, up a little slope and into the town itself.
The pursuit was so close and hot that, though my gun came into battery several times, yet I could not get in a shot.
Gordon was the most glorious and inspiring thing I ever looked upon.
He was riding a beautiful coal-black stallion, captured at Winchester, that had belonged to one of the Federal generals in Milroy's army — a majestic animal, whose neck was clothed with thunder.
From his grand joy in In Scribner's for June, 1903, General Gordon mentions this horse, describing him very much as I have done.
He adds that he only rode him in one battle; that he behaved well at first under artillery fire, but later, encountering a fierce fire of musketry, he turned tail and bolted to the rear a hundred yards or more.
I am glad I did not witness this disgraceful fall.
