A Horrible Scene.
--A correspondent of the Columbus Enquirer
I have been on several battle-fields, and have read many descriptions of them, but none that I have ever seen or read of can compare with that of Chickamauga
During the fiercest of the fight on Saturday evening, where our division (Stewart
's) was engaged, the woods took fire and spread rapidly.
The killed and wounded suffered from its terrible effects alike.
It was enough to make one's heart bleed to witness the agonies of our wounded comrades as they laid upon their backs utterly powerless to help themselves, while the consuming element had fast hold on some and was rapidly approaching others.
May we be spared the necessity of witnessing such another sight.
