Doug, That would be Anna Burns, the four year old daughter of Danny and Emily Burns. She's a natural drama queen--had the army been on time, and the Federal rations for Friday packed where they were intended to be, little Anna was well primed to weep and wail as she clung to her little mattress tick full of rice and salt meat, refusing to get off of it for stern and implacable Mr. Hicks.

I imagine some men would have had a come-apart right there and then.

Alas, plan A often gives way to B, C, and even X, Y, and Z, and those rations walked into the Federal camp right around midnight Thursday night in the hands of the ox cart wagoneer, while I stood on the road and admired the dying points of light.
