The third scene that transpired in Libby Prison was in regard to Colonel Powell, who, in an engagement with the rebels, had been shot through the breast, and it was supposent of the building, and opened the door of a dark damp cell, and said to him, Get in there.
Colonel Powell said, Sir, for what am I to be put in there?
Turner said, God d — n you, get in there!
you got word of it in the upper part of the building, and one of our number got down below, and Colonel Powell got a chance to send a slip of paper to us, saying, I am here in a cell; I have nothing to rder.
Our government, after a time, got word of it, and they informed the rebels that unless Colonel Powell was released from that cell, an officer of equal rank would be put in the same condition; and then Colonel Powell came out of the cell, having been put there simply upon Turner's authority, and because he had the power to do it. A truer, better, and nobler man never lived.
A better soldier
