ll of the strife I went with a staff-officer to examine the ground on our left.
One of Helm's wounded men had been overlooked, and was lying alone in the woods, his head partly supported by a tree.
He was shockingly injured.
He belonged to Von Zinken's regiment, of New Orleans, composed of French, Germans, and Irish.
I said to him: My poor fellow, you are badly hurt.
What regiment do you belong to?
He replied: The Fifth Confederit, and a dommed good regiment it is.
The answer, though almost ludicrous, touched me as illustrating the esprit de corps of the soldier — his pride in and his affection for his command.
Colonel Von Zinken told me afterward that one of his desperately wounded Irishmen cried out to his comrades, Charge them, boys; they have cha-ase (cheese) in their haversacks.
Poor Pat, he has fought courageously in every land in quarrels not his own.--D. H. H.
