THE CHANCELLORSVILLE CAMPAIGN, 1863
...The father of John Higgins was in the Eighth New Jersey regiment, and was wounded in Sunday morning's battle on the plank road. He was in the hospital, and as soon as camp was fixed John went to see his father in hospital. When John reached the hospital his father was dead. We all felt sorry for him, and missed the old man's- visits to his son, which he did whenever he could get a pass. It was an odd scene to see father and son sitting together for hours on stump or log, seldom looking at or speaking to each other, and not a dozen words spoken except "How are you, dad ?" "How are you, John?" "When did you hear from home?" "How was mother?" On parting it was "Good-bye, dad." "Good-bye, John." How sadly he missed the visits of his father we all knew, and no better driver, corporal or sergeant ever served in our ranks. He never blundered, was perfect in drill, and kindly in disposition.
