Thanks again Scott. Here are three instances involving a trophy or "requisitions" from the Gettysburg campaign involving Georgia soldiers, in keeping with the subject of this board.
(Harmon Martin, Cobb’s Legion, Letter to Miss A. F. Martin, August 25, 1863, Robert L. Brake Collection, Military History Institute, Carlisle, PA) ... I got three pictures out of a dead Yankee’s knapsack and I am going to send you one. If you do not want it you can give it away. The letters were wrapped up in a letter from the person whose image they are. She wrote to the Yankee that they were her picture and she signed her name A. Spears and she lived in Maine somewhere, but I could not make out where she lived. [This may have come from a soldier of the 3rd Maine, which was posted near the Peach Orchard on July 2. Martin's regiment and brigade (Wofford) occupied the Peach Orchard on July 3.]
(Augustus Henry Brantley, Company D, 8th Georgia, Confederate Reminiscences and Letters, United Daughters of the Confederacy) [I was boiling] 300 pounds of hog meat when a soldier volunteered that he knew the location of a bag of salt. He brought up the substance and liberally sprinkled it over the meat. Later, I tasted the simmering meat and discovered to my horror, amazement and disappointment that the substance mistaken for salt was a powdered scouring preparation.
(Diary of Lt. J. Reid, Company I, 8th Georgia) On July 2 our line of march crossed a public road beside which there was a dwelling. We halted here, and our regiment was near a house whose inmates had fled. Some of the boys went in and soon came out fantastically dressed in female attire of a former generation. Two or three wore sky-scraping bonnets, and each had on an old fashioned gown or dress. A rush of gallants was made upon them from all sides. They were hugged and squeezed. They blushed behind their turkey-tail fans, and (played) the woman to perfection. “Fall in” was commanded, and they shed their toggery at once, caught up their arms, and sprang into ranks.
