“I do not know why I wanted to go to war, but when I was 14 I begged my father to let me go, and he said, “No,” and I had to wait a whole year and was afraid the war would be over before I got there. I hardly knew what the war was about, as my father was a Union man and I was not taught to be a secessionist.”
