Lee and others for High treason. Johnson had just had a taste of a woman s innocent blood and he wanted to take a Bud from a hero s veins. No people on the Globe Ever endured their wrongs with More patience than we have. After the War was Over we had a right to expect to be let alone out not so. The Man who can abuse us most in the North gets the highest office and woe be unto the Man who dares to defend us. We surrendered in Good Faith and were anxious to be at peace. We were willing to Bury the past and let the Norridge cruelties of War be forgot ten but the Stock in Trade of North Ern politicians would vanish if that vol lint. U Luau use. 1ucu enough to fight until alter the War was Over Are the main ones who Are now clamouring for Southern blood. Let is have peace is All we ask. Let by gon be Captain Don t Tell me and More such horrible tales it makes the blood curdle in my veins to hear is a horrible the info and was. And it is to be hoped that the time is near at hand when air dispute Between nations will be settled by arbitration instead of War. I dare Sav that Manv cruelties wan committed on both sides and the deet Tang to be done is for All Par ties to try to forget and live. In peace with each " j i most heartily endorse that sen Tira ent and so far As my part of the dus Nessis concerned i have Dis covered a plan by which i think i can get my Money " How is that " you will inherit some Money from your lather he got it from his father who received it from my Grandfather for his negroes my father inherited the negroes and gave them to me. The government took them from me leaving me Oroke but you have inherited the original Price of the negroes now you and i will form a Union of our own a More perfect Union than that of the United state because it will be cemented by True love and upheld by the Money received for the negroes. I think this will be Lulu Datum us which we can Shari a first Clas s Republic of oar own and if any Little Burks should be admitted into our Union we will teach them better manners than to be cutting each other s throats like the Savage members of the Federal Union. Scottie will Yon enter into this unions Only on conditions that Vou a Ait abusing my people of the a think in that respect von mis understood me. I Don t mean to censure All the people of that Sec tips by any Means. I think a Large majority of the Northern people Are just Ana non Oradie but they per i Seq a minority to in act on us an unpardonable to some extent that Nav be True but there Are two aides to All ue8tions. What defense can you offer for the treatment that our prisoners of War received at Castle Hunder and Anderson Ville Don t you know that Many Federal sol Diers died of starvation at those places now Scottie you touch me 6n tender Point because i happen to know a great Deal about that ques Tion. I was a prisoner of War fifteen months and at one Timo in officer in a subordinate position to a a Auger Bonvie Ana ae9 Mer Eiore prepared to give a a direct history of both places. A. A Waleed i Ain glad to tear a for Nave Neara so Many Dit Arant Sto Ries about those prisons that my curiosity has been Freathy excited and i want Yea to Tell me the truth about very Well i Wili do it. No Pris Oner Ever suffered for food at Andersonville except when a had none to Issue to them. We had Many thousands of prisoners there. And nothing scarcely to feed them on. A our ports were blockaded our soldiers were starving in the Fields our wives and children were starving at Home How could we feed the prisoners when we had nothing to Doit with this being the Case the Confederate govern ment is offered to Exchange prisoners but this was refused. Our prov Chi tent the offered , the prisoners if the Federal government of a a i to repent t h . A n r m it .1 eral government would Swap pro visions for Cotton that a. Officer of the Federal government might be sent along to Issue the Provis ions to the Federal prisoners. This was rejected. The Federal govern ment preferred to let its Brave Soli Diers starve rather than make a treaty with rebels. Every Effort was made by the Confederate government to collect provisions for the prisoners that could be devised or thought of now let us look at the other Side of the picture. The Federal a Der Ern ment had plenty of Money plenty of credit and plenty of Provis ions yet the Confederate prisoners were starved to deathly thousands As was alleged in retaliation Lor ther starving of the Federal prisoners at1 Andersonville. How could1 the Federal government justify Suchi human conduct after we had made Buch propositions i Plau caught and devoured. By the Starr ing prisoners. Old Bones that were thrown into sinks were seized with avidity and the most filthy offing were eagerly devoured. Robust1 men became skeletons. Men were starving by thousands in the midst of plenty. R there was is dead line a few feet from the prison walk Andice guards were ordered to Bhoot prisoners who crossed it l he1 gear Frei fluently amused themselves1 by j throwing scraps of bread Ever Thev dead line in order to set to kill the starving wretch who risked his life to Petit. In t i a Young Man attempted t is a Cape one Day in a coff i .11he was placed in the dead cart and As soon Ajr if was outside1 to m prison limits lie threw off the la the cart Driver leaned fro if l v sea tend ran Fop dear Lite but thet prisoner a Mere boy of eighteen was recaptured and in order to ref what they called an example a thy forced the poor lad into the coffin a l nailed the lid Down and kept Lri Iii it till he died of suffocation. They i then buried him in the same Bovi the Only crime that unfortunate boy had committed was Antt temp to Estape from certain starvation. This cruel murder was committed. By the very men who clamoured for the blood of Captain Wirtz for Hia alleged cruelties to the Federal prisoners of Andersonville. A Federal officer with his own band set fire to my Mother s House r and burned it to the ground kicked her and my two Little Sisters Idt 1 the Street and refused to let then take oat an extra1 suit of clothes.". No people since the Days of Adam t were Over subjected to such cruel ties and no people Ever submitted 1 to and obeyed the Laws More a s trently than the South did when the " War was Over. Immediately after the War ended Yonng sergeant of the Federal army set out on foot " from new Orleans and walked to Washington City bearing the uni Ted states Flag. Why was he not n killed As he passed along among thei hell Deservi rebels As we i were called ? those rebels had been paroled and had Given a sol Dier s Promise to Lay Down their. Arms and keep the peace. They were the men who never feared a foe or broke a parole. When Gen.

Winou state the Case very favor Able to your Side i perceive but Are you nog willing to admit that would have been a great misfortune if the government had been broken of a a. Lilii Eviner As l do that can Dor is the Best 1 answer yes but mat to not justify the govern Mentill reducing its citizens to Pov erty for no other crime than a wish to be treated As equals As regards the Protection of property. If the people in the North had come with Money in one hand to pay for the slaves Wincn they bad sold to us. And their love or Freedom in the other it seems to be that would have looked More like doing the fair thing. But they first soil him to us take the Money stuff it in their pockets and then go into spasms about the poor Down trodden n negro. Would t it Bare looked a Little bet Ter if the fits had come one before they got the Money for their Newell As Yon have set an example of Candor i will imitate Yon in that respect and say that it would have been More bunness like u Thev could have had a few fits of human it before they sold their the South unjustly accused of bringing on the War because she merely wished to withdraw from a government that had failed and re fused to give her that Protection for her property which under the Constitution she he a right to demand and receive. Our Northern Broth Era declared that a Union with slave holders was a Union with the Devil and a league with our re ply to that was let us go in peace and let the league be for that crime. And that alone our i Tii Sci Zens were Kuna use dogs our houses burned our Miles horses Ana Cotton taken without compensation our slaves set free and set As rulers Over their enemies. De senseless women and children driven from their Homes their houses burned to the ground their properly destroyed. Thousands of Villa Ges were totally destroyed while officers wearing the United states uniform participated in the plan Der and with their own hands Light a the incendiary Torch i was captured in a cavalry fight at Egypt Mississippi and while 1 was bleed ing from a severe wound i was tied on the Bare Back of a mule and hurried on when i was so weak from loss of blood that i would have fallen out for the thongs that tied me on the mule. I saw a Federal Captain lash a delicate woman with his horse whip until the blood streamed from her neck and breast because she refused to Tell where her wounded husband was hid. That woman was the daughter of a hero who fell in the Foremost rank of the United states army at Buena Vista Mexico and the grand daughter of a Captain who lost his leg at new Orleans under general Jackson. I saw a German Soldier who had not been in the United states As much As six months break the Arm of a Little thirteen year old girl with his gun Barr because she Clung on to the neck of her pet Pony which he was trying to take from her. That Little girl was the grand daughter of the same hero who died for his country in the mex ican War and the great grand a augster of the Man who lost the leg at new Orleans what did that cowardly dutch a n know or care about the Union or the cons Titu Tion?7. About As much As a hog does for Christmas. The truth is the out Side world never will know of the cruelties that were inflicted on us in the name of Liberty. That there were Many Brave and honorable men in the Union army i do not deny but they failed to prevent the cruelties that were inflicted by their comrades. We were Over powered not from the Lack of Cour be but for want of food because while our soldiers were starving in tha Field our families were perish ing at Home. We were told that if we would surrender we would receive Parolo and be allowed to return to our tomes i it n c r i or " " i we kept the forms we would be molested.
