[Illustration: Yours Truly, J. L. Underwood ]


To the memory of Mrs. ELIZABETH THOMAS CURRY, whose remains rest under the live oaks at Bainbridge, Ga., who cheerfully gave every available member of her family to the Confederate Cause, and with her own hands made their gray jackets, and who gave to the author her Christian patriot daughter, who has been the companion, the joy and the crown of his long and happy life, this volume is most affectionately dedicated.
