Old Fussee, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from Old Fussee, Vol. 1: Or the Cannoneer's Last Shot- A Tale of Bloody Antietam It was on the eve of one of the remarkable and decisive battle? of the great civil war. The famous Confederate General Lee had crossed the frontier into Maryland, after several conquests, and the Union army found itself in a condition merely defensive and rather humiliated before the nation. Dismay was in the shattered ranks of the battalions at the capital after Popes disastrous campaign- but a vast thrill pervaded the weary army when it was known that once again the soldiers' favorite chieftain, McClellan, was to reassume command of the nearly vanquished troops. At the date on which our story opens, the brave and able general who now guided the destiny of the blue clad host had been fortunately apprised of Lee's intention to possess himself of Harper's Ferry, and even then the former was in a position to succor Colonel Miles - having brilliantly swept open the passes of South Mountain and sounded through the struggle there the signal guns that might have apprised the garrison at the ferry of his formidable proximity. But Harper's Ferry had surrendered to Jackson and Walker, McClellan had come too late. Not too late, however, to interfere with Lee's contemplated campaign- for, being aware of the caliber of the general who was now marching against him, Lee now saw that a great battle must be fought, and skillfully began concentrating his forces for the inevitable struggle. East of Sharpsburg, facing the purling waters of the Antietam, were the stern fronts of the Southern generals whose names for valor history will remember, and the to north, east and southeast slowly approached the long lines of blue in grand array beneath the flowing glorious stars and stripes.
