The train slowed, then stopped, I looked out the window. Rebel soldiers, hiding in the bushes
MadSnapper is madly clicking out the open window
One of the soldier spots me and gives me the SHHHHH sign. I smile and nod (click on photo to see how handsome he is, I had spent time talking with this soldier in his camp,)
Suddenly they stand and fire
I rush to the next car to see what they are firing at. It's those Union Solders, AGAIN
They Fire, then kneel to reload the long muskets.
On Union soldier is below me, firing from the ditch
A Confederate soldier pops out of the water tower and fires at the Unions soldiers.
NOOOO!!! he's hit!
They advance and the soldiers on the train with us jump off the train run on the battle field
The Confederates were out numbered, both sides had soldiers fallen in the battle
The General ordered the wounded on board the train to take them to the hospital tent at the train station.
