Parson Brownlow explains his presence at a war meeting in Cincinnati: “I am in a somewhat awkward position, having recently taken to my heels like a greyhound, and made 300 miles in short time.

Were I not sure I should not be treated as our soldiers taken by them are – incarcerated in their lousy prisons … I should have stayed; for I could endure the lice. I did not run out of cowardice, but I well knew that if they took me I would have to pull hemp without a foothold. [Laughter.] So I ran.” [NYT]
