"I am tired of the sickening sight of the battlefield, with its mangled corpses and poor suffering wounded. Victory has no charms for me when purchased at such a cost." -- General McClellan
"In this road [Sunken Road] there lay so many dead rebels that they formed a line which one might have walked upon as far as I could see. They lay there just as they had been killed apparently, amid the blood which was soaking the earth."
-- General John B. Gordon
