Twymans Mill (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 7
Grant's brutality. --The following is an extract of a young soldier's letter dated. In trenches, hear Gaines's Mill, Jone 5," in which the repulsive brutality of Grant to his soldiers is described by an eye witness: But the most awful thing that I ever knew of, and that I do know of, is that Grant never buries his dead or attends to his wounded. There are some of his men, killed and wounded in front of our works since the 1st, and they are still there as they fell, the poor wounded beseeching us to give them water, which we are not allowed to do in consequence of the enemy's sharpshooters. One fellow last night hollowing but, "Reb," "if you will only give me a canteen of water I will give you my watch." There we see them, day after day, in the hot boiling sun, without the slightest shelter upon them; and the dead are decomposing rapidly; all the bodies are black and smell awful. Did you ever hear anything in your life so horrible?
