Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 4. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Major Scheibert's book. (search)
ed compliment of forgetting his national hatred of the Germans for the time being, and translating his excellent book into French, it may serve to show Frenchmen that the distinguished Orleanist is a partisan, or at least, that he has not sought accuracy with that devotion to truth with which the true soldier-author should be inspired in the presence of great events. It will give pleasure to those who remember Major Scheibert so pleasantly in the Army of Northern Virginia in 1863, to know that he is alive and well, having served unharmed in the campaign against Austria, which ended in the battle of Sadowa. He was badly wounded in the late war against France in the battle of Worth. He remembers warmly his comrades of the Army of Northern Virginia, and holds frequent happy reunions with Von Borcke, the big and big-hearted cavalryman who rode with Stuart, when there is much talk of their old comrades — of those still here as well as of those who have gone beyond.
