If had shown as mucn enorg}
in the three days following Chickamauga
he did in that sanguinary conflict h<
could have marched into Chattanooga
without serious resistance, hut a delay ol |
forty-eight hours gave Thomas an oppor
trinity to fall hack with las own veteran;
and to reorganize I he corps of frit tender
and McCook. When Bragg did move ht
found the Union troops 111 the works lie
fore Chattanooga and guarding it frou
the west hank <>f the river, ami witl
characteristic caution he opposed Long
street's plan for an immediate assault I
and at once laid siege to the place.
The story of that same siege of Chat j
tanooga forms one of the most thrilling i
chapters of the war. and history affords ]
no|>arallel to its dramatic termination
The Confederates not only held thethm
railroads that entered Chattanooga, 1>ui
their cavalry, under Wheeler, jxmrei!
over the Tennessee and planted them
selves in force along the valleys ami hills
over and through which ran the Mac
Minnville wagon road, the only avenut
by which the Union troops could hope tt
get supplies till they were re-enforced.
Never before or afterward did tha'
magnificent Army of the Cumberland
exhibit such devotion and endurance a;
during the siege of Chattanooga for tht
six weeks following the disaster at Chick
luuauga. Winter was coming on, but i I
majority of the men were without over j
coats or blankets; many of them wert i
barefooted, and they did not have, whei |
cut off from the outside world, full ra |
tious for men and animals for ten days j
But true to their splendid record, tin
brave fellows tightened their belts anc |
stuck it out for weeks on a handful ol I
parched corn a day.
In early October the enemy capture*:
and held MacMinnville for a short time
and destroyed a lar^e train making foi |
Chattanooga. Our cavalry, under Mc |
Cook, Mitchell and Long, started t* j
clean out Wheeler, and this was eventu-
ally done, but not without much hare
riding and fierce fighting.
I was scouting in the defiles to tin
west of Sequatchie valley, in Bledso* j
county, Tennessee, at this time, m\
orders being to watch and report tht
movements of the Confederates undet
Armstrong, who commanded a divisioi
in Wheeler's corps. In appearance am! >
speech the people in this part of Ten
nessee are exactly like those in the Cum
berlanil run^e to tlio north, though tlit i
Union feeling was not so strong, mort
than one-half the men in and alxmt th*
Sequatchie valley having voluntaril>
entered the Confederate army.
We wero resting and grazing om
horses one morning along a littlestrean
running down from the bills to tht
north, when, in order to get a bettoi
view of the surrounding country, 1
clambered up a mass of rocks that rost
for several hundred feet above our torn j
porary cainp. I had been here but a few
minutes when I heard a metallic click, >
as if made by a scabbard, and cocking ;
my carbine I turned quickly in tht
direction of the sound, expecting to set
1 an armed man, whether friend or foe.
j But to my relief I discovered that the i
sound was made by a tin pail in the \
' hand of a girl who had come to a halt ]
I on an elevation about twenty feet behind |
me, and but little higher up. The pail j
j was filled with beechnuts, which tht
I girl was munching with astonishing ]
| coolness and a display of appetite with j
which I was in perfect sympathy.
She might have Iteen seventeen years
of age, but she had all the grace of
movement and the delightful ease of I
manner that make children so attractive.
Her thin dress hung half way lietween |
her bare brown feet and her knees. It |
was fastened at the waist with a cord j
that brought out the exquisite lines ol" j
bust and hips. The hands, like the feet,
were shapely and brown, and the face,
framed in a tangle of dark, sun tanned
hair, was a clear olive, tinted on the
cheeks with a warmer shade. The parted
lips revealed what is unusual with these
mountain women, and that is as perfect
a set of pearly teeth as 1 had ever seen.
With her head thrown slightly back,
her left hand resting on her hip, and her
right foot advanced with the hand that
held the pail, and a chaplet of crimson
leaves get tipsily on her h?ad, that girl
forme"?! one of the prettiest pictures 1
had ever seen, and as I looked at her
in undisguised admiration she reminded
mo of the bacchante of whom I had
read in my mythological studies.
I must confess that 1 was more con-
fused than if 1 had been confronted with
a man in gray with a gun, but not so my
lady with the sumac chaplet. Her big,
brown eyes took me in from my rusty
boots to mj* shockingly bad hat. Then
she placed her left hand l>eside her
month as if to direct the sound, and
called out in a voice that could be heard
distinctly down at the camp:
"Hello, sister!" I responded, and lifted
"Is yon ans down thar Yanks?" she
asked, with a wave of the brown arm
from myself to the valley.
•Tee, sister," 1 replied; "we are all
"Then yon uns hed orter be 'shamed
"I'm sorry to hear yon say that."
"Yes, a heap sight sorry you uns 'peat
to be," and the pretty ui%>er lip waf
curved at the corner, giving anothei
tantalizing glimpse of the pearly teeth
Then, with forcible directness and e
heightened glow on the cheeks that told
of indignation: "What fo' do you unt
all come down heah to fight we uns all'.
We uns don't want to fight you uns iJ
you uns let we uns alone."
I had become very familiar with thi»
presentation of the southern case, but 1
never before beard it pot with such com-
pact and delightful quaintneas, and )
would have shouted with laughter bul
for fear of hurting my lady's feelings.
"Then you are a rebel?" I said.
"No; 1 ain't nawthin of the kind," sht
retorted, with spirit "I'm fo'^he south,
I am; and do you uns know why?"
"No, but I should like to learn," I re
"I'm fo' the south, I am, kaze Marl
Hall he's fo' the south."
"And who is Mart Hall, my lady?"
"Mart Hall's my sweetheart; and he'i
in a critter comp'ny 'long with Mistat
Wheeler a fightin you uns; and I'd 'viz*
you uns to keep out of his way, ef so bt
ych aiu't a fairly achin to git hurt," sh*
There was no good reason why on th*
instant I should conceive a violent dis
like for Mart Hall any more than an}
other trooper along with "Mistah'
Wheeler, yet 1 must confess 1 did.
"Sister, what is your name?" I asked.
"Saddie Ferguson," was the response
"Where do you live?"
"Back thar whar the smoke's risin.'
and she turned with inimitable grac«
and pointed to a valley at her back.
1 sprang up to her side and following
the direction of her still extended ham
1 saw a clearing to the north and a lo$
cabin at the edge near the foot of a higt
"Father live there?" I asked.
She compressed her lips, nodded th*
pretty head till the crimson chaple'
threatened to tumble off, then bringing
her lips so close to my ear that her hoi
breath on my cheek thrilled me, sh*
"Dad, he's fo' the Yanks and th*
Union. He's hack kaze o' rheumatiz
but Jake and Si, them uns is my broth
ers, is gone off with Mr. Spencer's fus

"Ah, their yours is a divided house,"
said, with a sigh of relief.
"You uns ken jest bet that wo uns i:
d—d bad bruk up," she said, all uncoil
scious of the unfeminine force of hei
As it was growing dark, I bought tli*
beechnuts for "a dollah in greenbacks
or five in gray," and in order to get bad
the more valuable pail she accoinpaniec
j me to the camp. 1 have heard of act.-
| of discourtesy on the part of our men
i principally from the other side, but j
must confess that 1 never saw one. M)
men could not wholly conceal the ad
miration that showed itself in thei
j bronzed faces when this mountair
j beauty appeared in their midst; but l>e
! yond gallantly raising their hats when
ever they caught Saddie Ferguson's eye
! they tried, like good boys, to seem in
I different to her presence.
After this transaction was completet
I the girl did not seem in a hurry to leave
| She begged some tobacco for her tathei
and mother, or rather she offered U
| buy it and got it for nothing. Then sh*
j came to me again, and 1 felt flatterec
by 1 ler disposition to talk. "How long'i
! you uns a-gwine fo' to stay bar'.- Wliar's
you uns gwine whin vou uns light out'
W 'at's you uns heah fo'?" These and
I scores of questions of the same kind Miss
' Saddie rattled off with all the artlessness
of a curious child. And when at length
! she left, it seemed as if darkness at ono«
settled over the camp.
The beechnuts were not the least part '
of our supper that evening. About aii
hour after dark and when our horses I
had grazed bare the margin of tht
stream for three hundred yards below
the camp, we saddled up and pushed
I into the hills for about a mile, so as tc j
throw the enemy off the scent if then j
scouts had been watching us.
, As this second place was as near tt j
the Ferguson cabin as was the camp
| where Saddie visited us, 1 decided tt j
take one of the men and pay the father j
a visit. If he were a Union man, 1 rea-
soned that he might be of service. At i
we neared the cabin the yellow curs, j
never absent from such places, an j
' nounced our approach. Then the dooi '
was thrown ojieu, and framed in it wt j
could see the gaunt form of a man lean j
ing with both hands on a long stick.
We were yet fifty yards away, when the I
man in the door called out:
"Hullo, thar! Who's that?"
"Friends!" I replied.
"No'th or south?"
"H—l! don't you uns lie!"
"I'm not lying! we're for the Union!"
"Oh, waal, that's 'bout the same's |
no'th," said the old man in the door. |
with more confidence in his voice.
On entering the cabin 1 was disap-
pointed at finding Saddie absent, though
I am very sure she had nothing to do
with my coining. The old man had
been tall, rawboned and jjowerful in his-
time, and might have been still but for
the rheumatism. His wife, a short,
dark eyed woman, was not inclined to
be gracious, but sat in a corner by the
fire smoking and not deigning to make a
comment. The old man explained the
reason for this sullenness after we were
seated on the rude bench by saying:
"Nance" (he pointed his long stick at
the woman) "and me don't gee 'bout the
wah. I'm sot squall fo' the Union and
her and Saddie's h—1 bent fo' the south.
We uns liez two sons off in Mistah Spen-
cer's critter company tight'n fo' the gov'-
ment, but mos' of the young men here-
aways is in fo' the 'Federacy."
Pikeville, the county seat of Bledsoe
county, appeared to be Sam Ferguson's-
Ultima Thuie. He had never been in »
larger town, though many years "befo
the wah" he and some of his neighbor*
"had sot thar minds to go way up to
Chatt'nooga," but he "wuz bleeged to
stay back kaze the others got skeert o'
I could see that the old man would
have spoken with more freedom if it had
not been for the presence of his wife, at
whom he frequently looked in a half
timid way. We staid in the hut about
fifteen or twenty minutes, and when we
rose to go he hobbled outside after us.
After we had gone about ten yards he
came to a halt, and, glancing back over
his shoulder, as if anxious not to have
his wife overhear, he asked in a whisper;
' • Whar does you uns 'low to stay all
"We are in the woods about a half
mile from here," I replied.
"Got nuff men?"
"I think we have all we need."
"The reason why I'm axin," he said,
"is to giv you uns warnin." Then in a
lower whisper and after another back-
ward glance, "The mountains is chuck
full of Wheeler's crowd!"
"Do you know, of your own knowl-
edge, that there are any close by?" 1
"Yes, fo' shuahl W'y, not ten minutet

And with this Sam Ferguson—he w^is ;
cousin, as we afterward learned, of tin
notorious guerrilla "Champ" Fergus*»i
—waved his hand to us and hobbled back
I believed this information to Ik- reli
able, but I had also learned, from a Ion-
experience, the tendency of these moun
taineers to exaggerate numbers.
1 was not sent here to fight, unless it
was unavoidable, but to watch and re
port, and as the position we now held
had been decided on that afternoon, J
determined to stay where we were till
morning. At one o'clock I visited thesii
picket posts—I had only forty men—and
then came back, hoping to get a few
Hours' sleep. About half past four oui
little camp was aroused by yells and th*
discharge of carbines, and three of th*
pickets came running in. As the other'
did not report 1 sent out ten men to lean
the cause. These men were fired on bj
a small force, as 1 could tell by the dis
charge, and they hurried back without
firing a shot.
If the enemy had been present in anj
strength and intended a night surprise,
they would have followed up the firsl
attack; but as they did not do so, I in
ferred that the shooting was done b\
guerrillas, who, despite our precaution
had learned of our whereabouts. W*
untied the halters and stood to liors*
until daylight;-then a search was madt
for the three missing men. We found
them dead; two of them shot, and ont
with a heavy knife, manufactured frorr
a file, still buried in his heart.

We buried the men as best we could
and then rode down the hill to lh<
stream, ate sparingly of the rations ii:
our haversacks, watered the horses and
were preparing to mount when Saddi(
Ferguson put in an appearance. Sh*
was "going ovah Lost crik way to see f
sick neighbor." she said. Something
about the girl's manner excited tnv eus
picion. She must have seen the graves
up the hill, yet she made no comment
and when 1 asked her about Mart Hall
she declared, without a tremor of tht
eyelid, that she '"hadn't seed him senct
foah cohn cuttin time." She slipped
away as quietly as she had come, and 1
regretted afterward that I did not place
her on one of the empty saddles and
hold her till we fell back to the Sequat
About noon two bright men who had
been in the advance came in with a
prisoner from Armstrong's division ol
Wheeler's corps. He rej>orted his com
mand moving west, about five miles tc
the south, and as soon as 1 was assured
from our own observations, of the accu
racy of his-statement, I sent a mosscngei
to Colonel McCook. Early the next
morning the messenger returned on fool
—his horse had been killed by a guei
rilla about a mile back—with an ordei
to follow up the Confederates as far a-
Bridgeport and to report if they deviated
from that point.
On our way back we met old Ferguson
near the creek on which we were en
camped when 1 first met Saddie. The j 4-.
old man's brown, leathery face and the j
trembling of the long, lean fingers that
clutched his staff showed that he waf
very much excited.
"Don't go down the crik to the Se-
quatch," he said. "Mart Hall and a
gang is a layin fo' you uns."
"But how else am 1 to get to the Se-
quatchie?'' 1 asked.
"You uns could git thar without crit

over the men.

was reminded to ask, "Is this Mart Hall
