Excerpt from Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, Vol. 2: Being for the Most Part Contributions by Union and Confederate Officers, Based Upon "the Century War Series"
The whole country was full of deserted plunder, army wagons, and pontoon-trains partially burned or crippled... ; mounds of grain and rice and hillocks of mess beef smoldering; tens of thousands of axes, picks, and shovels; camp kettles gashed with hatchets; medicine chests with their drugs stirred into a foul medley, and all the apparatus of a vast and lavish host; while the mire under foot was mixed with blankets lately new, and with overcoats torn from the waist up. For weeks afterward agents of our army were busy in gathering in the spoils. Great stores of fixed ammunition were saved, while more were destroyed.
