"The atmosphere in the vicinity of that little army on that day may be described as blue and sulphurous. I mean by this that bad words were used. Well, we struggled on through the mud till night fall and bivouacked .... After drying our water soaked clothes and blankets and warming our almost benumbed bodies, we prepared our coffee and partook of supper, and all felt happier and better toward the world than we did an hour before in the wet, frozen, mud-bespattered, forlorn and pitiable condition."
