War moves south. And so the ball was opened -- It was there that war found him -- U. S. "Unconditional Surrender" Grant -- I will do the best I can -- Anaconda squeezes -- Mississippians don't know, and refuse to learn, how to surrender -- Sometimes now we can get the papers -- Vicissitudes. Grant begins to stir -- Until it pleases God to take me-- -- I reached Vicksburg, landed, assaulted, and failed -- If you can't smile, grin! -- When we can do no better we will blow them up -- I fear Grant won't do -- So thick a snake couldn't wriggle through it -- Corpse factory. Enemy will soon be upon us. -- Shut up as in a trap -- Corpse factory -- Martha says rats are hanging in the market for sale with the mule meat -- Father of waters again goes unvexed to the sea -- They'd all be dead anyhow
