But they are essentially correct. Here is the revised prayer of the soldier while on the celebrated Mud march of Burnside: Now I lay me down to sleep In mud that's many fathoms deep; If I'm not here when you awake, Just hunt me up with an oyster rake. It was rather interesting to walk through a company street of an evening, and listen to a few words of the conversation in progress in the tents — all lighted up, unless some one was saving or had consumed his allowance of candle. It would read much l
tion while the scarcity of food continued. Owing to this circumstance, when it became necessary to select a badge, the acorn suggested itself as an exceedingly appropriate emblem for that purpose, and it was therefore adopted by General Orders No. 62, issued from Headquarters Department of the Cumberland, at Chattanooga, April 26, 1864. The badge of the Fifteenth Corps derives its origin from the following incident:--During the fall of 1863 the Eleventh and Twelfth Corps were taken from Meade's army, put under the command of General Joe Hooker, and sent to aid in the relief of Chattanooga, where Thomas was closely besieged. They were undoubtedly better dressed than the soldiers of that department, and this fact, with the added circumstance of their wearing corps badges, which were a novelty to the Western armies at that time, led to some sharp tilts, in words, between the Eastern and Western soldiers. One day a veteran of Hooker's command met an Irishman of Logan's Corps at the

Here is the substance of the plan which he drew up, and which General McClellan approved, and published to the army in orders, Aug. 2, 1862, and which General Meade reissued, with some additions and slight changes, a little more than a year later. Ambulance Corps. All of the ambulances belonging to an army corps were to be placed under the control of the medical director of that corps, for now, in aroad around the cap, and inverted chevrons of the same color on each arm, above the elbow; for privates the same kind of band and a half chevron of the same material. By means of this designation they were easily recognized. By orders of General Meade, issued in August, 1863, three ambulances were allowed to a regiment of infantry; two to a regiment of cavalry, and one to a battery of artillery, with which it was to remain permanently. Owing to this fact, an artillery company furnished it

This made it necessary for Meade to change, which he did, finally adopting a lilac-colored swallow-tail mishaps occurred in fording by night than by day even then. During Meade's retreat from Culpeper, in the fall of 1863, --it was the night ofville, a little event occurred which showed what a choleric man General Meade was on occasion, and to what an exhausted bodily condition the past the camp-fire, the struck, by the merest accident, against General Meade, who jumped immediately to his feet, drew his sabre, and made aering to the ground. There he lay motionless, as if dead. At once Meade began to upbraid himself for his hasty temper, and seemed filled wiion of the nature of the injury done the prostrate veteran. To General Meade's great gratification, it was found that while his sabre had cu
