Scourge Of War Gettysburg RIP-Unleashed
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's 250 years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, as was said 3,000 years ago, so still it must be said, the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
Scourge of War Gettysburg RIP-Unleashed
Measles and jaundice began to scourge the camp; the green corn, it wassaid, did the army more damage than the enemy did in battle. Wagonsand ambulances went out daily loaded with the sick; the hospitalswere being crowded in Richmond and other cities; hotels, colleges, andchurches were appropriated for hospital service, and the good peopleof Virginia can never be forgotten, nor amply rewarded for theself-sacrifices and aid rendered to the sick soldiers. Private houseswere thrown open to the sick when their homes were far distant, orwhere they could not reach it. The soldier was never too dirty orragged to be received into palatial homes; all found a ready welcomeand the best attention. 350c69d7ab
