This chapter is divided into two parts. The first part talks about the news of an upcoming battle that the Alabamians received. The complexity of the attack is described. The Yankees were forced to make a rapid withdrawal because the Confederates were able to overrun them; however, things turned around and they were forced to retreat. The second part talks about a grand exodus from Elmira and the arrival of Corporal Jackson and Private Templin, which caused excitement in the camp. Their escape from Elmira prison is also described.
