69PREFACE
"Si Klegg, of the 200th Ind., and Shorty, his Partner,"
were born years ago in the brain of John McElroy,
Editor of THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE.
These sketches are the original ones published in THE
NATIONAL TRIBUNE, revised and enlarged some
what by the author. How true they are to nature every
veteran can abundantly testify from his own service.
Really, only the name of the regiment was invented.
There is no doubt that there were several men of the
name of Josiah Klegg in the Union Army, and who did
valiant service for the Government. They had
experiences akin to, if not identical with, those
narrated here, and substantially every man who
faithfully and bravely carried a musket in defense of
the best Government on earth had some times, if not
often, experiences of which those of Si Klegg are a
strong reminder.
THE PUBLISHERS.THIS BOOK IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED
TO THE RANK AND FILE
OF THE GRANDEST ARMY EVER MUSTERED FOR
WAR.

CHAPTER I. THROUGH MUD AND MIRE
DUTY'S PATH LEADS THE 200TH IND.
SOUTHWARD FROM NASHVILLE.
"SHORTY" said Si Klegg, the morning after Christmas,
1862, as the 200th Ind. sullenly plunged along through
the mud and rain, over the roads leading southward
from Nashville, "they say that this is to be a sure-
enough battle and end the war."
