Peter Apple, of Oakland, Marion County, was lately recruited for the Eleventh Indiana, and took part in the attempt to storm one of the Vicksburgh batteries. The rebel fire was so destructive that our army recoiled. Apple, the “raw recruit,” “didn't see” the backward movement, and kept going ahead until he came right up to one of the rebel guns, caught a gunner by the collar, and brought him within our lines, saying: “Boys, why didn't you come on? Every fellow might have got one.”
