The neutrals. By James Franklin Fitts. Futral. A person or nation that takes no part in a contest Between others. So says Tho dictionary. There Are such persons to be found at the theater of All wars i suppose and in various Points of the United states during our great War there were some curious specimens of this person. I happened to be situated so that i could observe some of them and interesting recollections of those observations recur at the mention of the name. In the summer of 1801 we All laughed and some of us will never get Over that laugh at the report of t he interview of certain prominent kentuckians with president Lincoln. These patriots had developed in their own minds a theory of the contest which they were anxious to have applied to their state thinking it would be a very Good thing for it to escape the sufferings and sacrifices of the War so easily. It was in Brief that Kentucky should remain perfectly Neutral Between the belligerents and that the government of the United states should guarantee and enforce that neutrality by arms if necessary. In View of the fact that this state was pretty evenly divided in sentiment As to the War and was then furnishing soldiers to both sides Tho proposition was an absurd one on its face. But the president listened patiently to the spokesman of the party and when he had done pictured the real situation to them with that dry Gravity which always attended his utterance of a particularly Good thing. A gentlemen a he said a there eau be no Middle ground in such a struggle As this. We Are All either for the i Mon or against it. The kentuckians Are situated just As the Idle Man was in the boat among the fishes men he was told that to must fish Cut bait or go ashore in in most of the states in rebellion where the Union armies moved there was no such thing As the claim of neutrality. The people were americans and in a civil War they naturally and inevitably took sides. The a Useo Esko manifested their feelings in different ways being sometimes loud and defiant and sometimes silent and sullen but they never pretended to have no opinions or to favor neither Side. 80 of the great body of Southern unionists though often compelled to Fly in order to escape persecution and frequently silent in the presence of Confederate o expat Ion they never gave up their Faith and they suffered much for it first and last. There were a few exceptions to these general statements which As usual Only prove Tho Rule. To find the places where there were neutrals or those who honestly attempted to be we must go to two widely separate d localities the state of Louisiana and the Shenandoah Valley. In the latter were the a a dunkers. A a sect of the Quaker Faith pious industrious people who abhorred War and whose religion forbade them to engage in any Way in it. If they had any preference it was probably for the i Niou but they were careful never to Manifest it by any hostile aet. They were always submissive to the existing order of things whether the Blue or the Gray at the time controlled Tho y Alloy. Their Fate was hard indeed during Tho continuance of the War. Both armies took their crops and their substance and when the Torch was applied to the upper Valley in the fall of 1864, these harmless people suffered with the rest. The confederates respected their conscientious scruples against lighting until about that time and then the dunkers became so Well satisfied that upon the next Confederate occupation of the Valley they would be conscripted that four Hundred wagons containing them Aud their effects followed Sheridan As he withdrew toward Strasburg. New Orleans in the Winter of i860, was practically a a dead City Quot the people were quiet and sullen the River was sealed and there was no Trade the hotels were closed or almost vacant and nearly All the Money disbursed came from our Small army. There was one class of people there very eager to get it the jew traders. There were very Many of them in new Orleans and had bean before the War and they looked at the War from a purely speculative Point of View. It was a matter of perfect indifference to these Sharp Isaacs whether the Union or the Confederate cause prevailed so Long As they were permitted to sell goods. Many of them were anxious to be butlers to regiments and eagerly courted the favor of officers who they thought could Aid them in these designs. It came to be Well understood among us that the jews of the City were Friendly to the Union officers Anil soldiers. We had Many favors from them in those Days Given with a selfish object in View no doubt but just As agreeable for All that. I will do them the Justice to say that they were pleasant men very intelligent As Well As shrewd and full of life and Good spirits. They would talk very freely about general Butler now that he was not in Power there. They had no motive to lie about him and some of their stories would read Queerly if put in print. But to get at the real Simon pure neutrals of our War we must go Over into Western Louisiana among the creoles Henat Iveson French descent. Many of the Confederate officers in the campaigns of that Section had French names and in the Early part of the War there were recruits to the Southern armies from this class. But by far the larger portion of the Creole population honestly desired to stand Neutral in the straggle. Doubtless too their sons were largely conscripted for the Confederate armies against their consent. As a class these people seemed to me really anxious not to take sides. Many of them could speak but Little English All their ways customs and traditions were French they knew what tile state of Louisiana was but it must have been a very vague idea that they had of the United states government a certainly until the Union armies occupied their country. They Hung out the French Flag from their windows when we marched by and were As anxious As the Kentucky statesmen of 1861 to be let alone. But of course that could not be. They lost their Cotton and their Stock Battles and skirmishes were fought on their plantations and very Little heed was paid in those stirring times to their claims of neutrality. Many of them have since made efforts to have the government reimburse them for their losses but they have generally been unsuccessful. It should be noted in this connection that general Mouton one of the Confederate leaders in Louisiana killed in the bed liver Campaign was of the Creole class. A Large part of this people descended from the acadians who were expelled from Nova Scotia by the British in tile Middle of the last Ledger. A pet Lamb. By Ephraim Marsh. We were on a March through the mountains of Tennessee under general Burnside. We got pretty hungry for fresh meat. As we passed a farmhouse i so died a pet Lamb. I stepped out of line and caught the Lamb and stepped Back again. I handed my accoutrements to a Comrade and Flung the Lamb Over my shoulder. The Man behind me was a Butcher and he skinned and dressed the Lamb while we were marching along. Then it was Cut up and passed around among the boys. The Man who owned it complained to the commander of the division and the commander spoke to the colonels and the colonels asked the captains if they had seen a pet Lamb but no one had seen it. Fentress col not term. A the close we by private William m. My can. The above is the head line in a communication to the or Tyrian Tribune of Indian Apo i isind., and written by that simple word accounts for the inaccuracies 1 the article contains. The a maj aha probably wore Gilt buttons and a shoulder strap As urge As the Palm of my hand but Iti venture the assertion that beneath the Gilt and Emblem of rank there was an entire regiment deployed As skirmishers and busily employed in keeping the a maj aha employed. I am judging from my own experience. The first a Gray backs that i encountered Mas while Riding in an ambulance in Kentucky. I found him on the sleeve of my Blouse skirmishing around for a Good camping ground he soon found it for i took off the Blouse Aud threw it away. The clothes i wore for some time thereafter consisted of pants Aud shirt. I remember the Quot cloth i after the evacuation of Atlanta our last Brush with the Quot johnnies was at Jonesboro a. From there we returned to Atlanta. I was hatless shoeless and horseless the remaining part of my uniform was embellished with a Gray backs Quot at that time i thought if i Ever got rid of Uncle Samuel Blue and the Southern Gray a i Back i would shout hallelujah and be Content to Wear anything i could get but of late years t have donned the Blue and brass buttons with the Monogram g. A. Ii. We Are All a maj has Quot now. And can Tell just As big yarns at Camp fires As the biggest officers in the army. Angola ind. On of lha killed. By c. C. Stowell. Eking so much indifferent papers As to when and where the last engagements were fought set me to thinking. I am not very Good at remembering dates but would like the space in your Soldier column to say who was one of the first in the War and one of the last _ killed. When president Lincoln first called for troops Joe Ripley was one of the first to respond. He served in the three months service re a twisted in the thirty fifth new York infantry and served his time out was in All the engagements with that regiment reenlisted in the eighteenth new York cavalry participated in All the engagements with that regiment and was killed near Yorktown. Texas the latter part of april. 1866, by some of Buck Taylor a Bush hackers. Comrades who marched from Shreve Ort la., to san Antonio tex., will remember him As color bearer on the Start of Gen. Merritt. He was a sergeant in company a eighteenth new York cavalry. He was a Brave Soldier and beloved by All who knew him. It is something uncommon for a Man to serve ail through the War and then to be shot Down by Bushwhacker As he and another Comrado were a year after the War was Over. I think he was one of the first and last in the War. I have forgotten the other comrades name. Perhaps others who see this will remember who he was. They were buried near Yorktown the last sunday in april 1866. Manhattan Kansas. Gripple Union solder a Anocia Tion.

Hays adjutant general. Beaten by a dead Yankee. When general Mcclellan was before Richmond anti great havoc Hail been made in his right Wing by general Jackson a forces another battalion of confederates came up in the rear. Marching through the stricken ranks one Soldier a countryman noticed upon the feet of a dead Union Soldier a very Fin a pair of shoes. It occurred to him that he would like amazingly Well to Exchange his own Strong cowhide shoes for the finely fitting ones of the dead Man. Facetiously observing a old fellow i done to reckon you will mind the Exchange a he transferred them to his own feet. The March continued and before Long the soles of the shoes began to drop off and the Confederate Soldier upon lifting them up found to his dismay that they were made of pasteboard. A Well a exclaimed one of his comrades a if you let a dead Yankee cheat you like that what in All creation would a live one do with you. A Dow a member or Hie seventh regiment was wounded.
