I found the quote I mentioned above in my notebook I carried on that trip.

It is by Dr. William Childs  Surgeon New Hampshire Infantry  Oct 1862.

When I think of the battle it seems so strange who permits it?  To see or feel that power is in existence that can and will hurl masses of men against each other in deadly conflict--slaying each other by the thousands. . . . . is almost impossible.  But it is so---and why, we cannot know."
