TextThis property is a special property in this wiki. <p>“And the game might become so rou <p>“And the game might become so rough as to necessitate precautionary steps. ‘Frank Ezell was ruled out,’ wrote a Texas Ranger in his diary, because ‘he could throw harder and straighter than any man in the company. He came very neat knocking the stuffing out of three or four of the boys, and the boys swore they would not play with him.’”</p> <p>Bell Irvin Wiley, <span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Common Soldier in the Civil War</span> (Grosset and Dunlap, New York, 1952), Book Two, The Life of Johnny Reb, page 159. Wiley’s end-note is, evidently, “diary of D[esmond]. P[ulaski]. Hopkins, entry of March 15, 1862, typescript, University of Texas.” Neither Hopkins’ unit nor its March 1862 location is noted. <strong>Note:</strong> can we locate the full text and its context?</p> e the full text and its context?</p>
