[NA]

THE SOUTHERNER boy, with a savage laugh, plunges his bayonet through the strong man's heart and he falls with a dull crash, breaking the steel from the musket's muzzle and lies quivering, with the blood-spouting point protrud- ing from his side. He understood now-these were not soldiers obeying orders-they were fathers and brothers and playmates, killing and maiming and tear- ing each other to pieces. Lord God of Love and Mercy, the pity and horror of it all! It was one o'clock before Julius, searching the field with a lantern, came on him huddled against the tree with Ned's body still in his arms, staring into the dead face.
