has ever seen and the most prolonged. The very earth shook beneath our feet, while the hills and woods seemed to reel like drunken men.
For and hour and a half this terrific firing continued, during which time the shrieking shells, the fragments of rock shattered from the stone what
in our front, the noise of bursting shell and shrapnel, the firm neighing of the wounded and dying artillery horses formed a spectacle terrible
grand and sublime.
