The sun is rising above the ridges
of the eastern uplands like a tarn
ished shield of gold, for a yellow mist
clings about the pines and dims its
radiance. There is scarce a breath
of wind, and the leaves hang stirless.
The cry of a migrating bird, pausing
a while to feed upon the last ripe
berries, comes like the remnant of a
song of the half-forgotten spring.
Not yet are the forests garbed in their
sorrowful robes of yellow mourning.
Not yet is the sky full of the shed
foliage of summer, fluttering to the
earth to be mingled with the dust
which devours all things, and from
its decay begets the new life of
spring. But there is a hint of mel
ancholy in the air, a premonition of
approaching death. There is a Sab
bath calm, a pervading sweetness,
compelling the soul to introspection
and self-search, as if all nature were
one grand cathedral where humanity
might fitly kneel and pray.
But what is that? A deep, bollow,
booming sound rolls far along the
wooded heights. Not thunder, for
there is no hint of storm in this dim,
vaporous air. Again! And now the
fearful, hateful significance of it is
revealed. It is the opening gun of
one of the most bloody and terrible
contests which ever desecrated the
world or darkened the history of
mankind,—the engagement between
the Union army under Rosecrans
and the Confederates under Bragg,
fought on September 19 and 20, 1863,
and since called the battle of Chicka
For a moment, ere the yellow fog
rolls down the hills, it is a lovely
scene which lies outstretched before
the man, in frayed blue coat with a
general's stars upon the shoulders,
aud a rusty hat with tarnished gilt
tassels, who paces the plateau of
Snodgrass hill, overlooking miles of
country. The picturesque Chicka
mauga creek winds between the slop
ing hills, divided into squares of
husbandry or pasturage. Here and
there a gentle declivity is surmount
ed by a farmhouse, nestling amidst
its barns and outbuildings; in a level
bottom a row of hay-ricks stands
among the second crop of ripening
grass; an orchard makes a darker
spot upon the surrounding green.
As he gazes the tender glory of the
scene is reflected in the man’s face
and he smiles; but even as tbe smile
crosses his bearded lips it vanishes

deep booming note rolls up the val
Beneath him, on the declivity,

and tangled blackberry-bushes, a
long line of blue coated soldiery trails
away out of sight around the curves
of the hill. The men are reclining or
sitting at ease, though each shining
rifle lies ready to its owner’s grasp.
With the heedlessness of veterans,
some are telling humorous stories,
some are playing the boyish game of
“pull the peg,” watching the whirl
and fall of the pocket-knife with
eager interest; some are sleeping
upon their folded elbows,—for many,
alas! the final slumber in this world.
The soldiers, too, hear that far-off
cannon-shot and recognize its sig
nificance. The story is cut short,
the knife is left quivering in the turf,
the sleepers start up.
“Boom! Boom!” Those are the
field batteries; you can feel the earth
jar beneath your feet with each tre
mendous explosion. And hark! the
opening volleys of musketry as the
regiments come into action; now the
continuous rattleof the “fire-at-will.”
A great battle is in progress there,
