had caused these wounds; for in an instant he lay a corpse, having been brained by one of the Lieutenant's company with the butt end of his gun. At last the Yankees got possession of the works, and the prisoners were hurried to the rear. A dearly bought advantage was theirs, for in a short time the position was retaken by the Confederates, and in thirty minutes some 13,000 Federals had been killed, while a number of Confederates had been taken prisoners. The latter, I among them, were taken two miles to the rear and guarded near General Grant's headquarters. Later we were moved further to the rear, and after the expiration of several days were marched to Whitehouse Landing, and were afterwards taken to prison at Point Lookout, Md. After a few days at this place we were removed to Fort Delaware. Here we remained until August 20th.
