The Civil War Muster

 

continued

Hunkered behind a rail fence, the Rebs fired earsplitting volleys at our boys in blue. Cannons belched smoke. Snipers clambered into trees and picked off soldiers whose "dead" bodies eventually littered the field. In the bleachers, I overheard a boy ask his mom, "Have any Americans died yet?"

"They're all Americans," she replied.

The Muster returns on Saturday, April 20.    (end of article)
