And the sleet came tempest-tost! But the orders out were rigid-- “Not a man must quit his post.” For, in front, (we'd had the warning,) Massed, in force, the rebels lay, Yet we looked for--prayed for morning, Though 't should prove our final day!

But he was two days behind Grant, who began his Virginia campaign on May 4th. Sherman broke Camp on the 6th and led his legions across hill and valley, forest and stream, toward the Confederate stronghold. Nature was all abloom with the opening of a Southern spring and the soldiers, who had long chafed under their enforced idleness, now rejoiced at the exhilarating journey before them, though their mission was to be one of str
