BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER
It often happened in the "civil war," that one in a family
would fight on the Union side, and another on the Confederate
side—each one fighting on the side which to him seemed right.
 In Kentucky, where the people were so divided in their
opinions of the war, that one hardly could tell whether to
call Kentucky a Union State or a Confederate State, it often
happened that own brothers would meet fighting face to face
At the battle of Shiloh, during the hottest of the strife,
it happened that two of these Kentucky regiments met and
fought each other with the fury and hatred which usually
marks civil warfare. One of the Union soldiers happened to
wound and take prisoner his own brother; and after handing
him to the rear, began firing at a man near a tree. "Hold,
Bill," shouted his captured brother, "don't shoot there any
more! That's father!"
