Descrizione

The best soldier of our staff was Lieutenant Herman Brayle, one of the two aides-de-camp.  I don't remember where the general picked him up; from some Ohio regiment, I think; none of us had previously known him, and it would have been strange if we had, for no two of us came from the same State, nor even from adjoining States.  The general seemed to think that a position on his staff was a distinction that should be so judiciously conferred as not to beget any sectional jealousies and imperil the integrity of that part of the country which was still an integer.  He would not even choose officers from his own command, but by some jugglery at department headquarters obtained them from other brigades.  Under such circumstances, a man's services had to be very distinguished indeed to be heard of by his family and friends of his youth; and "the speaking trump of fame" was a trifle hoarse from loquacity, anyhow. Lieutenant Brayle was more than six feet in height and of splendid proportions, with the light hair and gray-blue eyes which men so gifted usually find associated with a high order of courage.  As he was commonly in full uniform, especially in action, when most officers are content to be less flamboyantly attired, he was a very striking and conspicuous figure.  As to the rest, he had a gentleman's manners, a scholar's head, and a lion's heart.  His age was about thirty. We all soon came to like Brayle as much as we admired him, and it was with sincere concern that in the engagement at Stone's River - our first action after he joined us - we observed that he had one most objectionable and unsoldierly quality: he was vain of his courage.

Quarta di copertina

During all the vicissitudes and mutations of that hideous encounter, whether our troops were fighting in the open cotton fields, in the cedar thickets, or behind the railway embankment, he did not once take cover, except when sternly commanded to do so by the general, who usually had other things to think of than the lives of his staff officers - or those of his men, for that matter.
