The months of hard work and exposure in the swamps; the drinking of impure water, additionally polluted by the drainage from the camp and the battlefield, where thousands of dead were buried (not to mention dead horses and mules everywhere) – had done their work, a more deadly work than the enemy’s bullets.
But the brunt of the battle had then passed, and although firing was kept up between our line at the edge of a wood and the rebel line within the wood, no further serious attack was made by the rebels, and darkness soon substantially closed the conflict.
