Moore's collection includes the story of Dabney, an escaped slave-turned spy, €who provided valuable information to Union officers. In 1863,€Dabney fled across the€Rappahonnock€River to join a Union camp while his wife remained in Fredericksburg.€Dabney and his wife worked out a complicated signal system involving hanging laundry€so that she could pass along information about Confederate troops. He could look at her laundry line from across the river and share the information with the military commanders. He described the system:€"You see my wife over there? She washes for the officers, cooks, and waits around, and as soon as she hears about any movement or anything going on she comes down and moves the clothes on that line so I can understand in a minute. That there gray shirt is Longstreet; and when she takes it off it means he's gone down about Richmond. That white shirt means Hill; and when she moves it up to the west end of the line, Hill's corps has moved up stream. That red one is Stonewall Jackson. He's down on the right now, and if he moves, she'll move that red shirt."

21 editions published between 1865 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published shortly after the end of the American Civil War, this book is unusual in that it contains poems, songs and incidents (humorous and not) from both sides of the conflict. It adds a great deal of humanity to the overwhelming historical events of the Civil War. It is full of tales of military rabbit hunts, Irish women smuggling brandy flasks in chickens, and ribald jests and ungentlemanly jokes. It contains a touching account of a former slave's first free Christmas, heart rending narratives of widows and orphans, and countless tales of heroism. The tales of heroism often provide the most grisly detail, such as "My mouth was full of blood, fragments of teeth and gravel, my breast-bone almost broken in and I lay in mud almost two inches deep." This is a book you can dip into anywhere and come away with a new understanding of the human spirit and the strength, humour and courage it took to survive terrible times
