The password


General Smith, of the Army of the Confederate States of America, was coming in with his men too late to learn the password. Knowing that if he went forward he would receive the fire of his own side, he asked his men if anyone would give his life to save the rest. A soldier stood out of the ranks; after explaining the certain danger he would have to face, the general gave him a slip of paper on which was written: “Send me the password. –General Smith.” He knew the soldier would be shot and then searched and thus the paper would be found and the sign made known. The soldier set out and reached the outposts. “Who goes there?” “A friend.” “Give the password.” But the soldier advances in silence, and at once the rifles are aimed at him. He then made the sign of the cross and to his surprise, the rifles were lowered. The act of a Catholic soldier in commending himself to God was the very sign given that morning by the commander to his army.
