After a while my treason was betrayed to the boys by the fact that I was not hoarse. They punished me by making me sing as a solo the air of each stanza of Marching Through Georgia, Tenting To-night on the Old Camp-ground, and other patriotic songs, until my voice was assimilated to theirs. But my gorge rose at it all, and now, at five oclock of the first day, I was seeking a place of retirement where I could be alone and think over the marvelous event which had suddenly raised me from yesterdays parity with the fellows on the train to my present state of exaltation.
