John Beatty, The Citizen-Soldier; or, Memoirs of a Volunteer, September, 1863. (search)
Were a division of the enemy to pounce down upon us between this and morning, I fear the Army of the Cumberland would be blotted out. September, 21 Early this morning the army was again got into order. Officers and soldiers found their regiments, regiments their brigades, and brigades their divisions. My brigade was posted on a high ridge, east of Rossville and near it. About ten o'clock A. M. it was attacked by a brigade of mounted infantry, a part of Forrest's command, under Colonel Dibble. After a sharp fight of half an hour, in which the Fifteenth Kentucky, Colonel Taylor, and the Forty-second Indiana, Lieutenant-Colonel McIntyre were principally engaged, the enemy was repulsed and retired leaving his dead and a portion of his wounded on the field. Of his dead, one officer and eight men were left within a few rods of our line. One little boy, so badly wounded they could not carry him off, said, with tears and sobs, They have run off and left me in the woods to die. I

remediable, eternal separation. Never were men more unanimous. And North Carolina has passed the ordinance, I understand, without a dissenting voice. Better still, it is not to be left to a useless vote of the people. The work is finished, and the State is out of the Union without contingency or qualification. I saw one man, though, at Goldsborough, who looked very much like a Yankee, and his enthusiasm seemed more simulated than real; and some of his words were equivocal. His name was Dibble. To-day I saw rice and cotton growing, the latter only an inch or so high. The pine woods in some places have a desolate appearance; and whole forests are dead. I thought it was caused by the scarifications for turpentine; but was told by an intelligent traveler that the devastation was produced by an insect or worm that cut the inner bark. The first part of South Carolina we touched was not inviting. Swamps, with cane, and cypress knees, and occasionally a plunging aligator met t

I did so, and he departed with it. An hour afterward, I learned it had been passed unanimously. December 20 A man by the name of Dibble, the identical one I passed on my way to Montgomery last spring, and whom I then thought acted and spoke like a Yankee, is here seeking permission to go North; hens. Instantly we were on the old footing again. He said Secretary Benjamin had never treated him as Chief of the Bureau, any more than Walker.

How a Passport was obtained. --We alluded yesterday to the man Dibble, who obtained a passport in this city last December to go North, and subsequently turned up with the Burnside expedition at Newbern. We understand that Dibble, a Yankee by birth, had for many years carried on a successful business in North Carolina, and taking advantage of this fact, came here and represented to merchants, druggists, and others, that it was in his power to smuggle from the North any quantity of articles such as the Confederacy needed. The bait took so far as it was necessary to secure vouchers of integrity at the Passport Office; but how much gold he secured for the purpose of "making his purchases," we are not informed. He got his passport, and we have now heard the result. Being perfectly familiar with the river of North Carolina, he no doubt assisted in piloting the expedition which captured Newbern, and drove many loyal citizens from their homes. As an instance of misplaced confidence,
