After our fight with Jackson at Winchester, we were ordered to cross the Blue Ridge, to join Pope for his campaign. On our first day's march we passed the place where Ashby (so I had named the horse) was raised. My quartermaster had a nice eye for a horse, and had made up his mind that. mine was a prize. If you want to get rid of that old I could not ascertain), was all the reliable information I could get. But from the (lay of Iis capture until the close of the war that horse was my inseparable companion. Nothing could tire him or break his spirits.
