Out of this turmoil emerged heroes such as "Angel of the Battlefield" Tillie Russell, doctor turned soldier John Henry S. Funk and courageous mother and nurse Cornelia McDonald.
Roger, the waggoner, had pistols close at hand in the cart, though Ihad my doubts, as did the colonel, whether his natural stupidity andtimidity would ever be overcome should we be molested; but Walter, thepikeman, who rode.
Roger, the waggoner, had pistols close at hand in the cart, though Ihad my doubts, as did the colonel, whether his natural stupidity andtimidity would ever be overcome should we be molested; but Walter, thepikeman, who rode within the waggon, was made of sterner stuff, andcould be relied upon in a tight place.
