methinks I do digress too much.Citing my worthless praise: O pardon me:For when no friends are by men praise themselves.- Titus Andronicus, Act V. Sc. III.This is not a ghost story nor a piece of fiction of any kind- for I pride myself on trying at least to be a real man, and on having served two quite real and useful functions in life - for about fifty years that of a practical miller, having worked in some fifty different flouring mills, and for four years a soldier in the Federal Cavalry, where I had some quite trying experiences.The very unusual character of one of these was the occasion which in the first instance led to the writing of this little work.

I was a First Lieutenant in command of Company C, Third New York Cavalry, which formed a part of the First 1 brigade of General Kautz Cavalry Division of the Army of the I Potomac, during the campaign of 1864.On October 6th of that year Twas in command of the videlet posts in front of the picket-line of our Brigade to the right of the Darbytown road not many miles from Richmond, which city we expected to reach.

I got there on the evening of the next day, but not in the way I anticipated.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
