There are still a good many citizens here, notwithstanding General Sherman's order of banishment. Some harsh criticisms are made by many on account of Sherman's action in this matter, But, I think, under the circumstances, the order was a wise one. It is true, there is not much humanity about it, but there is not much humanity about war measures of any kind. As soon as our army moves on, then these citizens should be allowed to return and make a living for themselves. October 24, 1864Monday, October 24. — Dr. Holtzman returned, last night, from the North, having walked twenty-five miles, where the railroad was not repaired. Lieutenant Behm got a wagon, and we went out to where Mr. Howell's house had stood, for brick to make a chimney. The Regimental provost guards went along. We came to the ruins of a once splendid mansion. Nothing was left of it, save the remains of the cooking stove, and some piles of bats. Fences and all were gone. Several lines of entrenchments were dug where the house and garden used to be. While we were engaged in digging amongst the bats for whole brick, my mind was busy, comparing the past with the present. Here lived a rich southern planter — a rank rebel. When the war began, no doubt, he rejoiced. He sent his sons into the army. Often the war news was dispatched in his mansion. Here there was rejoicing, again and again, when the Yankees were defeated. Little did these people suppose that the tide of war would roll all the way from the Kentucky border to their very doors ; little did they, in their haughty pride, imagine that hated Yankees would dig up their fields, burn their fences, and tear* down their houses. Now, they fly, while a Yankee preacher is digging up the foundation bricks with which to build himself a chimney to his cabin in camp, near by. [and later] . . . I am very proud to receive this watch. In itself, it is a gem. It is a beautiful American watch, eighteen karat fine, purchased by Dr. Holtzman, for the Regiment, in Newark, N. J. It cost $206, and it is just such a watch as I have long desired to possess. Condition: Used, Original/Reproduction: Original
