Opis: Reminiscences of the War of the Rebellion, and of the Mexican War (Classic Reprint) - Murphy Charles J.

Excerpt from Reminiscences of the War of the Rebellion, and of the Mexican War
Having a claim pending in Congress through a number of years past for twenty thousand dollars, the value of my property destroyed during the Rebellion by our own troops, I was advised to put in shape and have printed any services of mine rendered during that war that would deserve any particular mention, and which would assist me in my efforts to procure the passage of the bill.
It places me in a rather awkward position to be obliged to write of myself in connection with my humble services, freely and cheerfully rendered in times of great peril, but I cannot help doing so, under the circumstances. I will, however, state my case as modestly as possible, and would only say that my regiment was the first to offer its services to the Government, making a most brilliant record during the two years of its time of service, and I never received or asked any favor at the hands of the Government since the close of the war.
As my object is to show that I rendered some service during the war, and what I did outside of the line of duty was prompted by the love I bore for my fellow-man, my only regret being that I did not have the opportunity of doing more, I have always felt a great satisfaction ever since to think that it was in my power to assist, in a small degree, in alleviating the sufferings of our noble men who perilled life and limb in this terrible war to uphold the Union.
On the news of the fall of Fort Sumpter in April, 1861, I was then an officer and one of the founders of an organization called the Scott Life Guard, named after my old Commander-in-chief, Gen'l Scott, and composed of those who served in the war with Mexico. We called a meeting on the day after the proclamation for 75,000 men by Mr. Lincoln, and were the first regiment to offer our services to the Government and were mustered in on the 3d day of June, and immediately started for Washington. I left my family and my business that was paying me an income of some $6,000 a year.
