Page 60 - Even the wounded and the sick prayed to find death, not by lingering pain or murderous blows in their beds, but where they had so often sought it, in front of the enemy : they were therefore placed in the ranks with their less disabled associates. Thus passed that dismal night.
Page 60 - Not a ruined fortress, beaten almost to the ground ! — not a handful of bleeding and dismembered men, whose brave souls were already flitting away! Yet did these unconquerable men continue to fill up the breach, with their bodies, till one by one they fell under the ruthless battle-axes of the enemy.
