Our train rolled to a stop, I turned from the window, to see the volunteers walking to the door that led to the off ramp, and watched as they fled down the ramp and into the battle
The Fighting was fierce, each side firing and firing, bodies falling on both sides and the roar of the guns slowly died down to a POP! Pop! here and there,
Suddenly silence filled the air.
Both sides began to carry their wounded toward those of us waiting on the train.
A young nurse raced for the door, carrying bandages.
Both sides, began to carry the wounded toward our train
I heard moaning, and crying and a few screams
The young soldier that told me to SHHH and not let them know they were hiding bent to say thank you to me for not calling attention to them.
I heard "All Aboard" and the train began the rocking, Clackety, Clack! Clackety Clack!
Someone shouted, 30 minutes to the Field hospital as we rolled through the fields of Florida. We were told it did not matter which side you were fighting on, all would have their wounds attended.
We saw the sign out the window and the train slowed.
