Robert M. Magill—Personal Reminiscences of a Confederate Soldier Boy.

Tennessee.

Tuesday, 4th.—Reported that Breckinridge has surrounded Nashville and given them two days in which to surrender.

(Let me state just here that I give these reports simply to show the kind of news the private soldiers were continually receiving; very seldom a newspaper reached the hands of the private soldier, and less often were “Official Reports” made. Generally these rumors were as wide of the truth as it was possible for them to be.)
