strategy;” he surrounded them, “and they had to give up. On the morning of the fourth he went out with his poncho over his shoulders so that the rebs couldn't see his coat, so they thought he was one of their own men; he went up and told them to lay down their arms and come and help carry some wounded off the field; they did so; when he got them away from their arms he rode up to the lieutenant, and told him to give up his sword; the lieutenant refused at first, but Harry drew his pepper-box, and like Crockett
's coon the lieutenant came down without a shot.
Harry then took them all into camp.
He took a captain and five men at another time, making twenty-five in all, which is doing pretty well for a little Dutchman; and he deserves to be remembered for it.” --Indianapolis Journal
