REAL MEMORIES OF A NOT SO 'CIVIL' WAR
by Mike Scruggs (provided by Martha Bradsher Spencer)

Grandmother Lucinda had other memories of the war. Her father, James Alexander Ross, was in the 15th Arkansas Rifles. He only served from late July 1861 to December 20, 1861. He had taken a severe cold from exposure and became very ill. He died at home shortly thereafter.

Later in the war, when Grandmother Lucinda was seven or eight-years-old, she remembered Yankee soldiers came to their home foraging for food. They had searched the whole house and were beginning to search the cellar when her widowed mother, Mary Joiner Ross, confronted the Yankee Lieutenant in charge.

Her mother stood up to this Yankee officer, asking him, "Do you want to be the one responsible for the starvation of these children?" Her bold appeal had its affect. The Union Lieutenant ordered his men to stop searching the cellar. Mary Ross and her four children were left with a little food hidden in the cellar, but little else. Grandmother Lucinda never forgot the incident and never had a very high opinion of Yankee soldiers or Abraham Lincoln.
