Who knows but the old flags, ragged and torn, snapping in the wind may face each other and
flutter, pursuing and pursued, while cries of victory fill a summer day. And after the battle,
then the slain and wounded will rise, and all will meet under the two flags, all sound and well,
and there will be talking and laughter and cheers, and all will say, did it not seem real? Was it not as in the old days?"

1st Sgt. Berry Benson, Co. H, 1st S.C. Inf. (P.A.C.S.)
