Confederate Snow Ball Fight at Dalton

This article really doesn't mention Louisiana soldiers specifically but it is a great write up about a massive snow ball battle at Dalton, Ga. in January of 1864. The Army of Tennessee was recuperating from its disaster at Missionary Ridge in late November. Reflecting the psychological recovery of the Army of Tennessee were the frequent snow ball fights the men engaged in. This is from the New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 8, 1902. Enjoy!!!
