The lyrics to the theme song say them Duke boys were, "never meanin' no harm."  It took many years and much soul-searching for me to accept this double-negative and that the Duke boys did, in fact, mean harm.

So my great great grandmother's brother was shot at Weldon Railroad on June 23, 1864. Calvin O. Foster, 11th Regiment Vermont Volunteers, Heavy Artillery. He died a slow death in  an Army hospital on David's Island in New York Harbor. I have his ID tag and a small photo of his girlfriend Mary which he wore. His sister saved everything and I have his letters he wrote most everyday bragging about saving all of his pay and getting fat in camp in Washington DC until May of 1864. His brother sat with him while he died and also wrote some bitter letters about not supporting the war any longer. All of the amputees in that hospital died in that July.
He joined up to save as much money as possible, his brother was drafted. He said the best things about Virginia and the worst about the thousands of freed slaves he encountered. He was repeating the family position to his sister I think.

The battle of Cold Harbor was June 1 -12, 1864. Calvin wrote
"Just a few lines to let you know that I am still alive. I would give all of my bounty if I could be with you. There is no fighting going on today or we don't call it so but there is a quantity of cold lead in the air. Our lines and the rebs are about 40 rods of each  other. We are storing; so are they. Three in our company were wounded yesterday. If we raise our heads above the pit we are sure to be shot at. I saw a man in company F, shot this morning close by me through the body. A boy was shot through his head a short time ago close by m- a nice fellow. I had a piece of hard tact shot out of my hands yesterday. A miss is as good as a mile. I have been under fire most evert day.    I have not time to write what we have done but I think I know what soldiering is. No one can know that never has been in it. It's awful cruel.   I would like to write to Mary but can't now for these little lead balls are flying all around us. Occasionaly a shell comes in. You in Vermont think the rebs can't fight. 'tain't so. They fight hard all night and all day. All charges are made in the night. We had two last night. Have not slept anay for along time- short naps when we lay in support of a battery. Shot and shell fall thick. Oh Mother, if I were out of this Armt, never would I enlist again. There were times I was glad to pick the meat of the head of an old cow to boil to make soup of it.

Daisy? But I thought that she was their cousin and oh, I see now.

Carry on then.

Yeah, in the later years of the war, Grant decided all those heavy artillery regiments in the forts around DC would serve a better purpose as infantry, as the ranks needed filling in the army of the Potomac. So off they went to the trenches in Spotsylvania and Petersburg.
