A Jaeger and his dog -- Charleston, SC
- "A Jaeger of the new picket had his dog along. Because this dog had
run ahead of the advanced post, his master called for him, whistling
the recall of the Jaegers. Hence Lieutenant Kling, though I had told
him to remain at his post until nightfall, withdrew, believing that I
had changed my mind.
He was barely halfway to the encampment when twenty enemy horse
arrived at the very spot where he had lain in ambush."
Diary of Jaeger officer named Hinrichs, written during the seige of
