‘ [320] this way?’ The shells were coming as thick as hail, bursting and kicking up such dust as no tornado could. However, when the colonel ordered it, and it was my duty to obey, I started to find the general, but as ‘Old Grand Dad,’ as we called him, was a wise man as well as a good general, he had doubtless selected a safe place. I dodged the shells and took a hasty look, but nothing was to be seen, not a man, nothing but shells and dust. I finally made my way back to the colonel, and reported the general could not be found. Colonel Montague looked me full in the face, smiling, said, ‘Bidgood, this is the first time I ever saw you scared.’
