The colonel hallooed to us as he came back to our line to dismount and take
shelter behind our horses. This order saved us much blood. By the time, and
even before, ... behind our horses. We had shot our muzzle-loading guns empty,

engine. ... killed by marauding mosquitoes, that have been completely drained of
blood.
