The following passage exemplifies my writing style: "The fighting had been hard and
continuous; that was attested by all the senses. The very taste of battle was in the air. All was
now over; it remained only to succor the wounded and bury the dead;to "tidy up a bit," as the
humorist of a burial squad put it. A good deal of "tidying up" was required. As far as one could
see through the forests, among the splintered trees, lay wrecks of men and horses. Among them
moved the stretcher-bearers, gathering and carrying away the few who showed signs of life.
Most of the wounded had died of neglect while the right to minister to their wants was in
dispute." (1 point)
