Excerpt from The Chap-Book, Vol. 9: Semi-Monthly; A Miscellany and Review of Belles Lettres; May 15, 1898
War take upon itself the duties of the ﬂeeing expander. And this, it is believed, represents the tradition still prevailing in the War Depart ment.
Previous to this, however, the correspondent of a Cincinnati paper informed its readers from Cold Harbor that General Meade had advised falling back after the Wilderness. General Meade, com manding the army at that point, disagreed with the young man on that point, had him paraded through the lines with what might be called a scare-head over him, saying, Libeler of the Press, and promptly expelled him from the army.
The methods of the navy seem preferable; though the army could hardly put itself to a better use by way of incident that would ensue from a similar suppression of yellow journalism.
