“Those blue bellies are behind us already!
Those Yankees won’t stop ’till they reach Kinston!”

Jessie Morton in the Confederate
Defensive Line, Battle of New Bern,
March 14, 1862


"That Yankee, standing slightly higher up the ditch-bank, with his sword drawn and a look of abject fear in his eyes, foresaw his own death in this Confederate demon from hell in the bottom of a Carolina ditch. He pissed his pants then and there. Taint Bell merely looked up at the Yankee he was about to kill, and smiled."

The fight at Deep Gully
Pollocksville, North Carolina
March 13, 1863
