HOW WELL THEY FOUGHT.

*'Say, Jim," he began, as they shook hands, "how do' you stand on this
Gettysburg dispute ?"

"■"Well, I've favored Sickles all along."

'' So have I. Now, see here. Right here on this paper is Gettysburg. ''

" Yes."

" Along this road is where Hancock came up."

"' I see."

"Howard came up this road."

"He did."

" Sedgwick and his Sixth Corps travelled along right here, and swung
into action over there on the second day."

" You just bet they did."

" Let's see ? Sykes must have come up by this road."

" Yes, I'm certain of it."

" Now, then, Jim. where were you ?"

" Well, our sutler wagon was away ofl^ here, say about twelve miles.
Where were you ?"

" I was with the wagon train off this way. aoout seven miles. Say, we've
got this thing down to a dot, and we ought to write a letter to some news-
paper."

"'Zactly, Jim, and we can't do it too soon. It's left to us to straighten
out this tangle, and we are the men to do it."
