Rev. W. H. Carroll, in an account of a visit to Cobb's Brigade, in the Biblical Recorder, says: ‘A regimental prayermeet-ing was to be held just after “tattoo,” and at the appointed time I started to it, in company with some officers. It was so dark that we could not see the stumps, but after stumbling over a few we reached the place of prayer. A part of the time it was raining and blowing too much for tallow candles, but we found a large crowd assembled—some sitting, others standing. In the thick darkness, that sweet old hymn, “When I can read my title clear,” with the chorus, “Remember, Lord, thy dying groans,” was sung. The services were then continued, and were interesting through out. It was, indeed, a solemn and impressive occasion.’
