12 JULY 29, 1864. “Sleepless nights. The report is that the Yankees have left Covington for Macon, headed by Stoneman, to release prisoners held there. They robbed every house on the road of its provisions, sometimes taking every piece of meat, blankets and wearing apparel, silver and arms of every description. They would take silk dresses and put them under their saddles, and many other things for which they had no use. Is this the way to make us love them and their Union? Let the poor people answer whom they have deprived of every mouthful of meat and of their livestock to make any! Our mills, too, they have burned, destroying an immense amount of property.” -Dolly Sumner Lunt’s journal

13 FROM A SOLDIERS WIFE. AT Paducah, Kentucky, I first realized what it required to be a soldiers wife. I had seen much before, and borne a great deal, yet it seemed but little comparatively when I came to take leave of my husband, and turned back to my lonely room to await his return.

14 THE SOLDIERS BA]3Y. A baby was sleeping, A mother was weeping, Pale vigil was keeping, For slumber had fle& Had news from the battle, Where deaths cannon rattle, 0, news from the battle! Its father was dead. The wife is still weeping, The baby is sleeping, Good angels are keeping Watch over its bed. Too young to know sorrow, Or lifes woes to borrow, Must learn some to-morrow, Its father is dead.
