The day before the fight, he was laughing and joking as usual and was full of spirit all though the long night ride. He rode into action just behind me and the last I saw of him, he was standing in his stirrups and cheering.. he was hit in the head and chest. I helped him under the cover of his horse which was killed. I held the poor boy's hands while he passed away. He only lived about ten minutes after he was wounded and did not have any pain, Thank God.
