"We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride"

Kayak back to March 1862 with Frederic A. Moritz
for an eyewitness "blog" of the New Bern day
which "began" the strangling of the South.

Reporting from under the bridge which carries the wounded

See where some wounded will be treated
"The Burnside" is more than a carbine
