"Romantic in their attachmant to the South, tinged somewhat with the fatalism of a military dreamer, they took no more heed of their life than of the wind which blew out the long locks of their hair--no more thought of the future than if God were liberty and death but a going to God. As soldiers under fire, their conscience told them that it was their duty to die at any time, AND THEY DID!"
