A moment later the officers began to bustle among themen, pushing them into a more compact mass and into abetter alignment. They chased those that straggled andfumed at a few men who seemed to show by their attitudesthat they had decided to remain at that spot. They were likecritical shepherds struggling with sheep.Presently, the regiment seemed to draw itself up andheave a deep breath. None of the men’s faces were mirrors oflarge thoughts. The soldiers were bended and stooped likesprintersbefore a signal. Many pairs of glinting eyes peeredfrom the grimy faces toward the curtains of the deeperwoods. They seemed to be engaged in deep calculations oftime and distance.CHAPTER18113WWords For EverydayUsere • mon • strance(ri mən(t)´strən(t)s)n., presentation of reasons for oppositionor complainten • gross • ing(en gro¯´siŋ) adj.,occupy-ing the attention completelysprint • er(sprint´ər) n.,person who runsa fast race for a short distanceWhat do the twosoldiers tell thelieutenant when theyreturn?

They were the only ones who possessed aninner knowledge. “Mule drivers—hell t’ pay—don’t believemany will get back.” It was an ironical secret. Still, they sawno hesitation in each other’s faces, and they nodded a muteand unprotesting assentwhen a shaggy man near them saidin a meek voice: “We’ll git swallowed.”114THE RED BADGE OF COURAGEWWords For EverydayUseas • sent(əsent´) n., agreement; consentWhat secret dothe youth and hisfriend share?
Chapter 19The youth stared at the land in front of him. Its foliagesnow seemed to veil powers and horrors. He was unaware ofthe machinery of orders that started the charge, althoughfrom the corners of his eyes he saw an officer, who lookedlike a boy a-horseback, come galloping, waving his hat.Suddenly he felt a straining and heaving among the men.The line fell slowly forward like a toppling wall, and, with aconvulsivegasp that was intended for a cheer, the regimentbegan its journey. The youth was pushed and jostled for amoment before he understood the movement at all, butdirectly he lunged ahead and began to run.He fixed his eye upon a distant and prominent clump oftrees where he had concluded the enemy were to be met, andhe ran toward it as toward a goal. He had believed through-out that it was a mere question of getting over an unpleasantmatter as quickly as possible, and he ran desperately, as ifpursued for a murder. His face was drawn hard and tight withthe stress of his endeavor. His eyes were fixed in a lurid glare.
