Battle of Bull Run

By A-Rod
Civil War Reporter

Before we started this war we thought it would be easy. It seems as though we thought wrong. After the first battle of Bull Run we were forced to retreat from the confederate soldiers. As we retreated, we had a hard time, considering there was a crowd of Union spectators, waiting for us to destroy the confederates. Runing through the crowd slowed us down, causing more casualty's.
For all the folks reading the paper today, don't come to the next battle, it looks like the war is going to be long, hard, and fought out.
