The Horrors of the Perryville Bat-
[From the Louisville Journal.]
A great part of the men of both armies who
ought this battle were those of Shiloh, who
were used to scenes of blood and carnage, and
unwilling to retreat on either side, which ac
counts for this deadly struggle; they say that
Shiloh was but the introduction to this cunsnm
mation of battle.
The bravery and the heroism were unparal
leled. Of hundreds of such instances I give a
few: One Illinois regiment of Federal troops
stood on the crest of a hill until all the field
officers had fallen, and there was no one to
command, their ammunition was all expended,
and that they died like Romans, on their post,
Is proven by the fact that the next morning,
after sunrise, I counted forty-four of them ly
ing, shot dead, in the forehead or through the
heart, in their exact stnight line of battle,
with their arms at their sides.
There were one hundred and fifty more arms
lying in the same straight line, proving that
number had been too severely wounded to miry
their arms to the rear when ordered back.
There were fifty more lying dead on the same
field with their arms beside them, shut before
they gained the cover of the next hill, and the
enemy checked by the reserve regiment. One
regiment of Federal troupe from Michigan
stood in line of battle, awaiting the storm ; at
the first close volley their standard was shot
away, and the flag turn to shreds ; the soldiers
beside the standard-bearer caught and flung up
in the air the tattered remnants of the Stars
and Stripes until there was a heap of sixteen
men shot on the spot. When the broken rem
nant of the regiment fell back they carried all
the tattered fragments of the old symbol as care
fully as a mother bears her child.
The standard of the 79th Pennsylvania inflict-
try was shot down six times, and as often reared
aloft, and when forced from the field the colo
nel carried it off.
The 9th Pennsylvania Regiment of Cavalry,
sent out three times in redid column to draw
the fire of the different batteries of the enemy
that were concealed, was rained upon by cross
batteries with every conceivable artillery mis
sile. With no orders to move, and unable to
return the long range fire, they sat on their
horses like statues, excepting those that were
struck and went to the rear. When ordered
off the field each _time, they went off at a slow
parade walk, disdaining to strike a trot, after
receiving fire for two hours.
One Federal regiment, the 16th Michigan,
and a Georgia rebel regiment met in line of bat
tle in an °pep field ; they deliberately planted
their standards at forty yards distance from
each other, and stood and loaded, aimed and
fired ; both flags were shot down, the Georgia
regiment almost totally destroyed, and their
In front of the destroyed Illinois regiment
was a worm fence, from which the rebel sol
diers took such deadly aim ; in nearly every
fence corner lay a. dead or wounded rebel sol
dier ; the fence was fired by the bursting shells,
and in the morning a fearful sight met our
eyes—in the ashes of the fence lay a sorched
and blackened mass of humanity, a roasted
man, and to all appearances, from their strug
gles, many of them only wounded when the fire
caught them. The death of our poor men,
even with all the agonies of thirst on them, in
the scorching sunshine and the dust and the
chilling of the long, cold October night, was
merciful compared with the tortures these men
met in the slow but sure approach of the flanies
Ste, ite., ele
creeping along the fence to the spot wham
they lay writhing. A flock of sheep were in
the field ; the carcasses of the dead ones lay
scattered about, and the wounded ones crept
into the same fence corners with the men, and
man and beast were roasted and charred to
The terrible Inhumanity of the commanders
of the Rebel army is proven by the fact that
on the left they had driven us back on our
second line of battle.. They had possession of
that part of the field, and held it until they re
treated at day-dawn. thiring that time their
dead and fiving were literally roasted (it is the
actual, horrible fact.) Our dead and many of
our wounded lay there stripped by them of all
their coats, bats and shoes, and some of them
of pants, and in the morning they raised their
heads with ghastly, chattering jaws, unable to
speak, and fell back senseless. There was many
a wounded man who was stripped, who had the
life frozen out of him on that bleak hillside on
the cold October night when it required blank
ets or a fire to keep a sound, well-clothed man
The enemy carried, through the day and
night, his thousands upon thousands of wound
ed to his rear, crowding and crushing them into
Perryville to overflowing, and into every farm
house, abed and stable within three miles of his
line of battle. Gardens and orchards were
strewn with them. As usual, the fierce canons
ding brought on a rain ; the evening of the
9th was cold and chilly, piercing to the very
bone. I went to one of their hospitals on the
morning of the 10th.
The house, sheds, yard and garden were
crowded to overflowing with crushed and woun
ded Tenneseeans and Georgians strewn around
on the cold, wet straw and earth, with a poor
tattered blanket for covering to keep off the
peltings of the pitiless storm through that bitter
night. Poor human nature could not with
stand the chilling air that pressed the vitality
out of them, and in the morning I saw two
long rows of white' corpses awaiting • the sol
dier's hasty burial, and I was confidant, as with
chattering teeth the poor survivors begged to
have their blankets dried at the fire, that the
cold night air had slain as many as our bullets
had done. • •
The miserably weak Rebel hospital force left
to cope with the awful work before them were
totally unable to attend to their wants at any
of their hospitals, but death was fast making
their work less. The amputated legs and arms
were lying piled up like cord wood.
The Federal dead were all burned by their
comrades on the 9th and 10th. On the morn
ing of the ;10th, I , estimated three thousand
dead Rebel soldiers lying on the right, centre,
and left in an extent of six miles of the line of
battle, their commanders marching off leaving
than unburied ;,r never even sending in a flag
of truce asking as to give them sepulchre.
They were•then lying mangled and torn, fester
ing :and petrifying, and the-hogs devouring
them.! It is the actual, horrible fact
The citizens of Perryville then began•to bury
them to prevent a pestilence, but there are
hundreds of them lying where they crawled to
die; between the logy and Ist the iravines 'and.

GINERALL BANKS delivered a speech in Boston
on Saturday evening, in the course of which he
said : The period of war is never one of con
tinued success or perpetual disaster ; alternate
triumphs and defeats diversify the history of
every warlike nation. We had our disasters as
other nations in like circumstances, and de
spondency rested momentarily upon many loyal
faces. Be saw nothing in the future to justify
apprehension, or to strengthen for a moment a
fear that our earnest efforts for the re-establish
ment of the Government, of the Constitution,
and the. Union would fail. The material and
physical strength of the nation has not yet
been appreciated, much less exhausted. Not a
loyal State, except perhaps Maryland,, exhibits,
or has exhibited, the slightest evidence that the
Government was engaged in a serious war.—
Whenever their power shall have been com
pletely developed, the rebellion will be sup
pressed. It can never resist successfully an
earnest and exhausting demonstration of the
marvellous power of the loyal 'States. The ap
proaching winter was not to be lost in Inaction.
The Government was determined to put forth
its strength. Numerous exptditions were on
foot that could not, if vigorously pressed, but
be fatal to the revolted States. He hoped to
bear his share in the hardships and perils of
these labors, and be asked no other satisfaction
and support in the coming trials, as in those
past, but to be surrounded and sustained by
such gallant spirits as Massachusetts bad sent
forth to battle for the great and imperishable
principles of humanity and liberty.
