A Monsieur Chillon, a French army veteran who had migrated to California, walked cross-country to war in 1861, through Indian territory accompanied only by his donkey, Jason, with whom he slept. Chillon was welcomed by the French-speaking 3rd Louisiana of the Confederate Army and settled down. There was one trouble: the regiment�s colonel bore a strong resemblance to old Chillon, and at bedtime Jason invariably pushed into the commander�s tent and tried to curl up next to the officer, to the joyous yelping of the troops.

Just something not quite right about that relationship of the French guy and that donkey, Jess.:smile:

There is a story I once read about after the fall of Vicksburg, Confederate POWs were being marched out of the city when one Rebel saw the letters OVM on a Union soldiers belt plate.

The Rebel was curious and finally asked the Yankee what the letters stood for.

The Yankee playfully replied, "Ohioians Visiting Mississippi."

I like the story about a pair of Southern farmers meeting Union soldiers for the first time. The soldiers were picking corn and noticed the farmers watching them. After conferring for a time, the farmers approached. "Be you Yankees?" inquired one. "Yes." The two men looked at each other, then at the soldiers. "We don't see no horns." The soldiers stared for a minute then one piped up, "Oh, we're young Yankees. They haven't grown in yet!"
