The Daily Dispatch: September 15, 1862., [Electronic resource], Youthful soldiers. (search)
Youthful soldiers. We met on Saturday with two youths, who had been honorably discharged from the army, having seen more in a brief period than most men in a lifetime. One of the little fellows, Henry Woods, of Georgia, is just fifteen and a halt years old; the other, Jesse Scott, of S. C. barely fifteen. These two mere children, for such they are in appearance as in age, fought in all the battles round Richmond! What other country can produce such examples of infant heroism and patriotism? A happy journey home to them, and may every one who meets them on their way give them substantial Godspeed?
