POULTNEY BIGELOW


Here we are thirty days after the declaration of war, and not one regiment is yet equipped with uniforms suitable for hot weather. Troops sweat day and night in their cowhide boots, thick flannel shirts, and winter trousers. The poor men have to sleep on the ground in the heavy, dirty sand. Troops are supplied with only greasy pork and beans. The result is that already camp doctors are busy with men and officers suffering from various degrees of dysentery. We hush this up as well as we can, but to do so altogether is impossible. Poultney Bigelow, Harper’s Weekly.
