CSA:1st Lieut. J. M. Phillips; Comrades; 14th Reg't AL. Vol.

05 Sep 2012 20:05 - 05 Sep 2012 20:06 #1078 by Mamie
I am about to recount to the people of Alabama and to the world; the principal events of the war, connected with the service of the 14th Regiment Alabama Volunteers. Perhaps some one may think I attempt a task beyond my strength; but no man so well knows himself as not to attempt too much. Yet I shall not have to reproach myself with having omitted any commendable act; or to record any deed unworthy of the State or Government they have so faithfully served. Whatever I may say, I aim to speak the truth; and if I should mention anything not conformable to the general interest of the country, it will be an error of the head and not of the heart, and I declare in advance that I disavow it. It is pleasant to read a good history, but it is not so easy to write one. A large portion of this work I am aware, will disagree with impressions made upon the minds of the people of Alabama and elsewhere, by the stories of unjust and prejudiced minds. I ask only one favor of the reader, and that is, question the officers the Regiment, who have a right to know, before he disputes any act of the Regiment I herein relate.
