The Battle of Poison Springs
Why do we have to march all the way there? Why can't they just get a decent railroad? Then it would be easier for all of us. We wouldn't have to march into the rain if they had anything worth fighting for here.
*Whispers* Quiet You lot! We're deep in enemy territory and we've come to far to get caught now!
*incoherent mumbling about the weather*
Sir, I implore you to see reason! the union is marching here as we speak. If we do not evacuate, we will be slaughtered! It would not be dishonorable if we left the plantation in the face of such danger. Please sir, for the safety of your family.
*Sigh* I was afraid you would say that...
NO. I refuse to run away like a coward in the face of those wimpy Yanks. They will be sorry they ever stepped foot across The Dixie Line! Call in the Calvary! We will meet them in the bog, and we will crush them!
Sir, news from the battle field... we're losing. The Confederates are brutal in their fighting strategy, especially towards the black soldiers. This is bringing morale down fast. There's still a chance of victory, but it's a nighty slim one at that.
NGAHH!!! What am I going to do about this! We can't lose! If they are being as brutal as you say they are, and they probably are, they'll kill us if we don't win. I'm especially worried about the black soldiers. If they're caught by the confederates, they could be sold back into slavery, and we promised them that they would be safe from that kind of thing. I don't want the union to sound like a big group of liars.
Come on men! You can doAAAAAAUUUUUUGGHHH!!!!!
