Record of the Service of the 44th Mass. Volunteer Militia, Aug. 1862 to May 1863, published 1887

Item Description

“Captain Carroway [a Southerner] stated that for a long time he belonged to the ‘unreconciled,’ but at last realized that it was no use ‘kicking against the pricks.’ Now, he says, he can see that the war had its good results; that the people of both sections are becoming better acquainted, are discovering good points in each other that they knew not of before, and that their minds are being gradually cleared of prejudices. For his part he ‘was right glad to see us.’”
